New Boys to T.C.S., welcome. By now you have been 
with us long enough to get a fair idea of our way of life 
here and you should be able to decide whether you will like 
your stay here or not. Personally, I hope you do, not only 
because I like it, but also because here you are offered 
opportunities for your advancement which not everyone has 
the good fortune to enjoy. 

When you join us, you do so starting at the bottom, 
and you are expected to work your way up alone from year 
to year. Your first year may be regarded as your "initiation 


year." You do certain jobs around the School or fag for 
a Senior Boy. You help him in that way to do the job which 
he merits because of his past record. In so doing you also 
acquire a more intimate understanding of the activities and 
spirit of the School. 

Your primary purpose in being here is, of course, to 
learn something, and therefore your school work should 
take precedence over everything else: it must come first. 
Though your work in the classroom and during study 
hours is your most important occupation, it should not 
be the only one. The School offers you a wide variety of 
activities, and you are expected to take part in the ones 
which interest you. Try to learn a sport and play on one 
of the teams. There you can learn to follow the rules of 
fair play and practice some real team work. That is im- 
portant not only in sports, but in everyday life as well. 
Whenever you do something, always do it wtih determined 
initiative and good-will. I hope that you will soon learn that 
the more you put into the School, the more you give of your 
best, by that much will you gain not only in enjoyment and 
pleasure but also in acquiring a certain inner atmosphere. 

Help us to take good care of the School. Others have 
used it well ; now it is our home, and we want to pass it on to 
our followers in good condition for their enjoyment. You 
must co-operate in helping us to uphold the reputation and 
honour of our School by living a clean, honest and useful 
life. Use rightly the advantages T.C.S. has to offer, and in 
so doing help us to maintain and even elevate its high 
standard as a great Canadian School. 

— N.S. 





On September 15, the School was honoured by a visit 
from the Right Reverend John Daly, who had just come to 
Canada from his Diocese of Gambia in the Gold Coast area 
of West Africa. There he worked among the natives for 
20 years building up the Christian Church and developing 
Anglican education centres. 

In his Chapel address the Bishop told us about the work 
of the Anglican Church there in the last few years. The 
natives, he said, were very eager to become real scholars 
and some had become fully ordained Anglican Priests. He 
pointed out that the "Whites" and the "Blacks" in the 
Gold Coast area were very co-operative, unlike some other 
parts of Africa, partly due to the work of the Church. The 
Bishop made clear that there always was a need in Africa 
for Christian workers, other than the clergy, like doctors 
and teachers. Referring to the situation in South Africa and 


comparing it with Gambia, the Bishop illustrated his point 
for the need of greater co-operation between the white and 
black people on a piano keyboard. Tunes can be played on 
the black keys and also on the white, he said, but for the 
fullest harmony and richest result both must be played to- 
gether. The following day he showed the Sixth Form many 
interesting slides on his new diocese of Korea to which he 
has been recently appointed to succeed Bishop Cooper. This 
new work will present many difficulties and require much 
courage and we wish the Bishop every blessing. 


On Sunday, September 18, Dr. Ketchum spoke to the 
School in evening Chapel. He told us how this day had been 
set aside to commemorate the Battle of Britain and the 
pilots who had fought in this decisive battle of the few 
against the many. He told us how the English spirit had 
rallied and withstood the terrific bombarding of London. 
The R.A.F., through personal sacrifice, endurance and 
courage, had won against staggering odds to save England 
and probably the West from domination and dictatorship. 

He said that at the begining of a new School year we 
should think of these fighter pilots and the purpose of their 
sacrifice achieved by teamwork. We are undertaking some- 
thing new and probably think three things: "Can I do it?" 
"What wUl people think of me?" and "WUl I like it?" The 
Headmaster told us that we can do anything if we have 
confidence and simple faith in ourselves. As to the second 
question of what other people will think of us, he explained 
that the answer to this is tied up in our character. If we 
try to be sincere and friendly towards other people they 
can't help but like us. The answer to the third question 
of whether we will like it depends on the answers of the 
first two, for if we are able to do something and other 
people like us we are sure to like what we are undertaking. 


The Head pointed out that life in the small world of the 
School or the larger worlds outside the School demands 
action and purpose. We must know what we want and 
strive to achieve it. Everything may be had if we are willing 
to pay the price of enthusiasm and interest. Life here or 
in the world is like a department store ; there are those who 
know what they want and go immediately to it, and those 
who wander aimlessly and never find what they really desire. 
Some may get lost, but they will meet a friend who will 
always give them trusting advice and help them to see the 
true way of life. Christ is this friend and we need only to 
seek His advice and help and we will be answered. 

Dr. Ketchum urged us to be doers, to be friendly and 
to strive for a high purpose. 


On Sunday, September 25, Canon Lawrence addressed 
the School at evening Chapel. His sermon was taken from 
the Revelation of St. John the Divine 21 :21: "And the twelve 
gates were twelve pearls, every several gate one pearl; and 
the street of the city was pure gold." Canon Lawrence 
explained that the pearl is a symbol of purity and anything 
which is impure may not be admitted to the Kingdom of 
Heaven. He also pointed out that to obtain the pearl one 
must be willing to suffer to reach the gate of Heaven. Jesus 
took the unparalleled risk of coming to earth to live among 
men, to save us. He died and suffered on the cross so that 
we should be saved, so that the wicked man may turn from 
his wickedness and live. 


As October 4 was St. PYancis Day, the Headmaster in 
his Chapel address on October 2 related the life and char- 
acter of this famous and much loved man. Born in Assisi, 
Italy, about 1182, his first inclination as a young man was 


to join the cavalry and become famous. But after having 
had a great vision, St. Francis dedicated his life to God. 
He surrendered all his worldly posessions and began a 
humble and selfless life by helping the sick and returning 
to many men their self-respect and dignity. St. Francis loved 
and reverenced all God's creatures which to him were 
brothers. His alert, gay character and Christian work 
brought him five thousand followers within ten years. These 
men became known as the Franciscan Order of Friars. To- 
day they still follow the ideals and example of St. Francis. 
Abiding in love of nature, they live a generous and lowly 
life which is devoted to helping their fellowmen. 


The very welcome return of many of last year's choris- 
ters was an immense asset in the re-or;2:anizing of the choir 
in September and their cheerful enthusiasm enabled us to 
prepare and present special music for the Harvest Thanks- 
giving Service on October 9. 

The choir sang a setting of The Nunc Dimittis by Dr. 
Healy Willan as a tribute to that great Canadian composer 
who celebrates his birthday on October 12; the service also 
included the anthem "O Come Ye Servants of the Lord."

It was a beautiful sunny warm day on September 18 
as the new boys piled into a bus and various cars and went 
to Wesleyville Beach for the annual picnic. | Ten miles west 
of Port Hope the bus rolled to a grinding stop and there was 
a scramble to get out. After a short swim in the lake, an 
appetizing meal of sausages in buns. corn, peaches, grapes 
and ice cream was enjoyed. While those who had overeaten 
sat around digesting the feast there was a softball game 
between the ex-J.S. boj^s and others, umpired by Dr. 
Ketchum. The game was a draw and all cooled off with a 
swim in the lake where the new boys challenged the Prefects 
to a water fight and won. At four o'clock they returned, 
water-logged, to the School after an enjoyable day. 


An additional house has been added to the School owing 
to the extra enrolment of boys in the Senior School this 
year. It is in effect the same as Trinity House in that it 
consists of both Brent and Bethune boys. The house, situ- 
ated just over the brow of the hill on College Street, was 
previously owned by Mr. James, a master at the School, and 
after him. Mr. Molson, also a master who moved to a country 
home last summer. A new master, an Old Boy, Mr. Gordon, 
is in charge of the twelve boys there. The house has four 


bedrooms, two bathrooms, a sitting room, plus Mr. and Mrs. 
Gk)rdon's living quarters. Two of the bedrooms have wall 
to wall carpets, and all the rooms are wallpapered. There 
is a swimming pool in the grounds which may be used, 
weather permitting. There is also an overgrown lawn-tennis 
court which the boys use as a playing field. The boys eat 
all their meals at School and are allowed to ride their bikes 
to and from James House. 


This year the School has changed its athletic policy for 
the autumn term. All boys in the first half of the fall term 
will now play one sport, football. Previously we attempted 
to have three soccer teams as well as three football teams. 
As usual there are Littleside, Middleside and Bigside divi- 
sions. Boys not playing on these teams are divided into two 
inter-school leagues according to age and size. There are a 
number of teams in the league and each will play games 
three times a week with one day for further practice. Equip- 
ment may be rented from the School. Every boy in this 
way will get a chance to play on a team in an organized 
sport with a fair amount of intensiy. It is hoped that the 
new program will cut down the confusion of playing two 
autumn sports at the same time when each demands a large 
number of boys to field proficient teams. Soccer will come 
into its own after the half term break. 


On Monday, the first of August, eight boys from Toronto 
and two from Montreal descended upon us to begin two 
invigorating weeks at the ski camp. We were immediately 
swamped by requests to ride the ponies, which should have 
been exported to the Calgary stampede. They refused to be 
mounted, and when a rider did manage to carry out this 
difficult feat, the pony would usually head for the nearest 


low-hanging branch. We were sorry to have to tell the boys 
that Dr. Ketchum could not be with us, as they remembered 
how much he enjoyed the camp, and they his presence last 
year. After the Montreal boys had arrived, we returned to 
the camp, where a tent for three had been pitched, which 
proved successful except in a heavy rain. 

Our main project was to dam up the creek to provide a 
place to swim, instead of driving the boys to the School 
swimming pool. The dam was made of sandbags, inlaid with 
drainage pipes, but unfortunately one side collapsed when 
we filled it up. Thus we had to resort to the jeep to trans- 
port the whole group, and one day we had the insult of 
having to be towed by a Model T to get it started. 

The first two nights at the camp proved hectic for two 
counsellors, as the boys had been eating green apples, 
unnoticed by us, and the ill effects began in the night. Other 
less strenuous evenings were spent playing bingo and writing 
postcards. On one afternoon we went down to the lake 
where we enjoyed a quick dip and as dusk fell had a com 
roast around a giant bonfire. Also we took the gang to see 
"Davy Crockett," who inspired them to further bravery with 
the horses. 

Our campers were very keen on baseball, and usually 
each night a game was held between "Toronto" and 'Mont- 
real", the latter being the invariable winner. We asked the 
Argonauts to dig up a team to have a game with us, but 
they didn't have time. One hot day while we were in the 
swimming pool the Argos came in for a dip with us, con- 
trary to their regulations. Maybe this is why they are "all 
wet" in the Big Four. 

There were numerous expeditions radiating to all the 
surrounding countryside. The boys loved to visit farms and 
see the horses and chickens, and show off their limited 
knowledge of the country. Rice Lake was rediscovered by 
three boats of joyful explorers, also assisted by Dave Osier. 

Sad was the day when clothes were packed and fare- 


wells shouted, and a silent and mournful ski camp relaxed 
under the late summer sun. To us it may have appeared 
like another vacation in our busy summer holidays, but to 
the boys here it was a vivid experience which will bring 
light to the darkest days of the coming year. As one of the 
campers so aptly worded it, he spent last year numbering 
the days until he could come again for another rollicking 
season at Trinity Camp. 

I know all the boys are indebted to the Pat Moss Club 
for their unending efforts in securing funds for the camp, 
and also for their work in digging a garbage pit and erecting 
a backstop. A vote of thanks to this diligent organization, 
and may it continue its good work. In addition, Tony 
Ketchum has written an excellent report on the difficulties 
we faced at the camp, and how to overcome them, which 
has been placed in the minutes of the Pat Moss Club. Last 
of all, we wish to thank the student body of T.C.S. for freely 
donating the funds to make this camp a success, and we 
foresee that next year, with your co-operation, it will con- 
tinue its beneficial work. 


On July 29, the Argos arrived here at T.C.S. for a 
strenuous eight-day training period. The 43 players were 
confined to the grounds and allowed no friends, relatives 
or cars around while they were in training. The rising bell 
sounded at 7:30, breakfast at 8:00, and after a hard day's 
work, curfew was at 11:00. The team had two practices 
daily with classes at night. Shirts, ties and jackets were 
the dress worn to meals and downtown. The team slept in 
the Senior School, but as the new addition to the kitchen 
was not finished they ate in the Junior School. It seems 
that the boys got into the room where the drums and 
trumpets are kept for the band, and weird noises were heard 
on numerous occasions as they marched to the Junior School 


for meals. Movie leave was granted on a couple of nights 
and the group had their own movies and cameras. On 
Sunday, the players attended the churches in Port Hope. 

Besides the normal equipment used by a football team, 
the Argos brought two rubbing tables, a diathermy ma- 
chine, seven-man sleds, two-man bucking machines, blocking 
dummies, Oilman pads, three movie projectors and screens, 
and last but not least, 32 footballs. For the players there 
were 1,000 yards of tape and 1,000 yards of electrician's 
tape for ankles. 

The laundry in Port Hope was extremely busy, with 
350 towels a day as well as 125 practise shirts, 25 T-shirts 
and 125 pairs of socks. For the oversized players, 15 large 
beds were rented as well as larger desks for the classes. 

The Argos were here in the middle of the heat wave 
and so were often practising in 90-degree heat. The cooler 
from the Tuck Shop was brought over to the basement of 
Bethune and 48 cases of 7-Up were supplied for the players 
to drink. 

No outsiders were allowed on the grounds, but the 
townspeople were allowed to watch from the Tuck Shop. 

The players left on August 7, after what they termed a 
very enjoyable stay and many hoped that the team would 
come back next year. 


The first meeting of the Dramatic Club was held on the 
evening of Monday, September 26, in the Guild Room. Elec- 
tions were held and the following were the results: Presi- 
dent, Michael Meighen; Vice-president, Dave Ross; Secre- 
tary, Bill Noble; Treasurer, Trevor Ham, and Conmiittee 
Member, Jerry Spivak, 

It was agreed that auditions for those who wished to 
join should be held at once. 

With Mr. Scott kindly acting again as director, the 
society looks forward to another successful season. 



The Debating Club began another season on Sunday, 
October 2, when over forty boys attended the opening meet- 
ing. A vote was taken and the following were elected to the 
executive: President, Michael Meighen; Vice-President, Mac 
Campbell, and Secretary, Dave Dunlap. 

Regular meetings are not scheduled to begin until after 
the football season, but preparations were begun for the 
opening debate at Ridley on November 18. 

The club will again be under the excellent guidance of 
Mr. Dale and it is hoped that this year T.C.S. will become 
undisputed holders of the Fulford Trophy. 


The opening meeting of the French Qub was held on 
Friday, September 23. The first business was the holding 
of an election. The results were as follows: President, 
Michael Meighen; Secretary, Mac Campbell. 

Once again under the capable leadership of Mr. Bishop 
and with a large and enthusiastic membership coupled with 
a revised programme, an excellent season is expected. 


A new tie has been introduced into the School which 
is limited to the use of Masters, Prefects and Scholars (boys 
with averages of 75 per cent up in term work). 

The background is deep maroon. The design features 
part of the School crest, a crossed key and bishop's crook 
in silver, surmounted by a St. Edward's crown in gold. This 
small design is repeated ovei- the whole tie. 

This type of design is similar to that of the ties used 
by clubs and colleges in England. It is completely new for 
our School, as all ties were composed of stripes up to this 


Many Old Boys are ordering the tie; they may be 
obtained from the Old Boys' office at a cost of $3.25 each. 


Five Old Boys who wish to remain anonymous have 
made generous contributions to a Bursary for the son of 
an Old Boy who gave his life in the Second World War. 


At the beginning of term it was announced from Ottawa 
that No. 398 Trinity College School Air Cadet Squadron 
had been judged the most proficient in all Canada and had 
been awarded the Air Force Association Trophy. Never had 
the Cadet Corps won this trophy since we became an Air 
Cadet Corps and the announcement gave much satisfaction 
to boys and Old Boys. 

In 1936, our Army Cadet Corps was affiliated with the 
Air Force, the first School Corps in the Commonwealth to 
be linked to the Flying Service. Ten years later we became 
an Air Cadet Corps with certain privileges because of the 
pioneer nature of the Corps. 

The trophy which the Corps has just won is g^ven to 
the imit judged to be the most proficient in drill, Air Cadet 
Studies such as Map Reading, Airmanship, Meteorology, 
Signals, Navigation, Radio, Photography, etc., in the Band, 
in Shooting, Physical Training, Efficiency of Officers, 
Records, etc. The T.C.S. Corps scored 1,988 points out of 
2,000. There are some 269 Air Cadet Corps in Canada. 

The School celebrated the occasion by a half holiday 
on September 27 and the Headmaster mentioned the leading 
part played in the direction of last year's Cadet Corps by 
Squadron Leader Batt, E.D., Flight Lieutenant Armstrong, 
A.F.C., CD. and the Senior Officers, Osier, Donald, Massey, 
Ketchum, Bums, Young. 


Messages of congratulations were received from many 
Air Force and Air Cadet Officers and Old Boys, among them 
The Minister of National Defence, Air Vice Marshal K. 
M. Guthrie, National President of the Air Force Associa- 
tion, who said "Personally and on behalf of the Royal 
Canadian Air Force Association it is a pleasure to offer 
our warmest congratulations to the Officers, Instructors, 
Cadets and member of the Civilian Committee of No. 398, 
Trinity College School Squadron, R.C.A.C., on winning our 
Association Trophy for 1954-55. We salute the most pro- 
ficient Air Cadet Squadron in Canada", George Ross, Chair- 
man of the Air Cadet League for Ontario, Jim Smith, Act- 
ing Chairman, W. P. Ferguson, Secretary of the Air Cadet 
League, Ontario, C. H. Jenkin, Area Chairman of the Air 
Cadet League, Major Eric Cochran ('28-'35), Air Com- 
modore W. W. Brown, Air Vice Marshal J. G. Bryans, Air 
Ofl&cer Commanding Training Conmiand, R.C.A.F., Squadron 
Leader Wilfred Curtis ('41-'47) , Colonel H. E. C. Price ('29) , 
Captain Bill Beeman ('41-'43), the Rev. T. F. Summerhayes. 

Before the Corps became an Air Cadet Corps we had 
won three times the Imperial Challenge Shield for shooting 
and the Strathcona Shield once. 


There were few surprises this year; VI A boys did 
reasonably well, some of them very well. All except one 
gained admission to the Colleges of their choice. Three 
papers were failed by the one boy who did not complete 
his Upper School; one paper was missed by the others in 
VI A. Only nineteen first class honours were obtained by 
the twelve boys, ten of them by Scott and ten Broek. 

VI B did not fare so well, as was expected. Five boys 
passed all their papers out of nine attempting eight or nine 
papers. There were four first class honours. One boy who 
had been urged to take his Upper School in two years failed 
every paper except two. He still has to take two years over 


his Upper School, and unfortunately has this record on his 
first attempt. 

Scott obtained the highest mark any boy has achieved 
for many years, and certainly one of the highest in the 
Province: he obtained 97% in Algebra and it was generally 
concluded to be a pretty tough paper. Of fifteen boys wTiting 
nine papers or more, three failed to pass all papers. 

The best results were obtained by ten Broek, five firsts, 
thi-ee seconds, one third; Scott obtained five firsts, two 
seconds, two credits; Saegert three firsts, five seconds, one 

The analysis of the results follows: 

1955 1954 

No. of candidates 25 31 

Papers attempted 203 271 

Papers passed 175—86.2% 87.8% 

Papers failed 27—13.3% 12.2% 

1st class honoui's 23—11.3% 25.5% 

2nd class honours 50—24.6% 20.7% 

3rd class honours 37—18.2% 16.2% 

Credits 65—32% 25.5% 

Total honours 110—54.2% 62.4% 


Scott was awarded a Dominion-Provincial Scholarship 
of the value of $500. He was also awarded an Atkinson 
Foundation Biu^ary of the value of $400. 

Saegert won an Imperial Oil Company Scholarship of 
the value of $700. The Company also gives $500 to the 

ten Broek won the Richardson Memorial Scholarship 
at Queen's. 

Maclnnes, who left us last year, has been awarded the 
Beatty Scholarship in Mathematics at Bishop's University — 
a highly coveted award. 

One hundred and fifty-four University Scholarships 
have been won by T.C.S. boys in twenty-one years.

Form was one of the best scholastically, they had surprising 
success in being admitted to Colleges.

Well, another year has begun and we of the slander 
sheet are struggling to produce something decent for pubU- 
cation. Of course, we aren't at all being helped by a certain 
top dormer who threatened our star reporter, but as usual, 
we continue. To start with, we will state our policy that 
any names referring to people living or dead is purely on 

We notice a new sports policy to which our only com- 
ment can be EEEE now, but we being talkative must add 
more. The Juniors are still stunned by the BOMBing at this 
time. Littleside looks pretty POTENT. However, this is all 
said at an early date and things are still looking HUNGRY. 

Keeping in spirit with School tradition are WHISTLER 
and WILLIE; each is doing a SHAKY KNEES SHUFFLE. 



We have even come tx) ask whether or not Brent House will 
always be SCOTTish — a lone answer — PSHAW. 

Nothing has been DUN around Bethune either, but 
MIKE BEVAN has been pretty NERVY. HOARY goes for 
JACKS but ROGER would rather play HIDE-N-GO-SEEK. 
A personal note from, the author: NOBS, it was a crummy 
radio anyway. We know of a certain ameriCOON who has 
ROBBed the bath room as he ran out of letter paper. The 
house or should I say the School was normal until the 
THUMP came back — It seems they ran out of RUM in 
Bermuda. "CY" the SAILOR found time to come back also. 
Aaah, the "femme fatale" department has come up. HAM- 
BONE is too VEIN to see sweet SUE and all he could say 
was NUTS. DICKIE sings PEG of my heart after every 
VOODOO SUITE. What's so good about the kitchen besides 
the food ROO?? We have even been told that ADAM'S girl 
ain't named EVE and UBBY is FUZZIE'S brand. The 
QUARRIE over Brent has now mined 23 letters at this 
issue. The BETte is on JAY, however. We think Dave is 
marching around IRELAND but the RIDGE isn't. 

On the subject of habits we notice that the VEEL and 
the FLUSH have dropped old NIC while EMPTY has picked 
him up. With new rules in practice nobody has asked PTUI 
to turn up his radio for two weeks. Picked up and nearly 
dropped in the passing — OH DEAR, clothes make the man. 
Before we ZOOM we must thank our Butler who found 
the VINE when it strayed.

As tabulated in the menu book of Mrs. Clarke, my name 
is Wednesday. Now don't turn the page muttering profane 
language about the present day standard of Record journal- 
ism, because, with the addition of a little applied imagination, 
this is a very plausible tale. Its purpose is to try to explain 
to you some of those gnawing worries you have concerning 
the kitchen, and to do this I assume the identity Wednesday, 
and propose to tell you about myself ... or in simple speech, 
will recount to you the functioning of our kitchen for one 

To begin with, though, let's get a general idea of the 
layout of our new kitchen. As you know, or should know 
by now, the kitchen consists of a rectangular room about 
the size of the school library. At one end of this room is 
the serving counter, opening onto the main school dining 
room. Standing there, facing the kitchen, one sees before 
him two short parallel counters, in one of which are sunk 
internally heated pots. These are used as general utility 
tables by the maids. To your extreme left, you see the two 
toasters. Following along that wall there are the general 
cooking work tables, sinks and other equipment. In the 
centre of the floor, on the far side, are the propane gas 
cooking ovens and frying surfaces; on this side there are 
the pressure cookers, boiling pots, and an over-sized mix- 


master. Still at the serving counter, to your right, there is 
a counter leading off which disappears into the dish-washing 
room. Continuing along we see the baking room, and finally 
two large walk-in refrigerators with a combined capacity 
about the same as a two-man room. At the end of one of 
these is a walk-in deep freeze unit. At the far wall of the 
room are situated the stairs, a freight elevator and the 
dietitian's office now occupied by Mrs. Clarke in the absence 
of Mirs. Wilkins, through illness. 

Downstairs are the maids' dining room, two large store- 
rooms, a garbage room, a root cellar, and other rooms neces- 
sary for the kitchen staff. 

The general impression I get of the kitchen building is 
that it is airy, clean, modern and efficient. As always, when 
building something of this nature, there are changes neces- 
sary to further this efficiency which can only be seen and 
corrected in the finished building. These are being made 
while this is being written. 

On my day, Mrs. Clarke arrives as usual at half-past 
six, when the air is still heavy with mist, dew covers the 
ground, and the only other people awake are some defaulters 
running around the track. After checking to see that all is 
well, Mrs. Clarke flicks on the toaster unit (much earlier 
this morning because the other unit is broken) . The toaster 
is an aluminum box-shaped affair within which runs a 
vertical, miniature rack escalator around a heating coil. On 
each run of the escalator are put two pieces of bread well 
spaced apart. The bread goes up the front, and the back 
is toasted, goes down the back, and the front becomes 
toasted. Most complicated, but very practical, I understand! 
About five pieces of toast per minute is the rate of produc- 
tion for one such toaster. 

The table maids arrive around six-forty in a blinding 
flash of enthusiasm. They finish preparations for breakfast 
by putting the fruit juice and the cold cereals on the tables, 
etc., and then retire to their own dining room for their 


breakfast. At seven-twenty the kitchen is humming again 
with Tada and Mrs. Clarke frying eggs on the stoves, the 
tops of which are perfectly clean and flat. 

By this time the "twoer" is clanging away and the hall 
is rapidly filling with thoroughly annoyed young men who 
have been suddenly aroused from their sweet dreams of 

The breakfast plates are then taken from their con- 
tinuously heated cupboard, each one wiped clean of dust by 
Tomi Tada and her six maids, and then placed on the serving 

Now the School has finished morning prayers and break- 
fast begins. The fruit juice glasses are brought to the 
serving window, and then taken along the direct-route con- 
veyor counter into the dishwasher room. Here they are 
rinsed, piled into racks and placed in the automatic dish- 
washing machine by Carmen and his pal. They are then 
doused with hot water and special soap (the soap bill runs 
about four dollars a day), rinsed again, dried, and forced 
out the opposite end of the machine. Then they travel along 
a special slipway to heated, aluminum cupboards where they 
remain until further use. As the rest of the dishes come 
in they are rinsed and treated in a similar manner. When 
the fried eggs are served, the dishwashing trouble is greatly 
increased due to the sticky egg yolk on about two hundred 
plates, and when the water temperature is not high enough 
the glasses come out cloudy and so are dried by hand! 

Out in the kitchen, demands for seconds in toast and 
eggs are multiplying and the staff is kept hopping until the 
end of the meal. Coffee is made in much the same manner 
and apparatus as in most restaurants. 

After the tremendous task of cleaning up the kitchen 
and dining hall is tackled by the staff, they are once more 
tidy and prepared to do yeoman service. So much for break- 


Break is a relatively simple procedure and needs no 
explanation other than that any surplus hot chocolate is 
put in the refrigerator for the kitchen staff on its request. 
Thus the School receives fresh cocoa each break, which is 
preferable ... no? 

Dinner is quite a good show on Wednesdays. Usually I 
have potatoes. No matter what state they are served in, 
they are all popped into an automatic washing device, which 
chums them around, washes and de-skins them. This ma- 
chine is waist-high, and has a cavity about the size and 
shape of a wastepaper basket, at the bottom of which is a 
multi-bladed propeller which keeps the water hopping. From 
here, if they are to be boiled they are dropped into a boiler. 
There are three of these, each one being self -heated. They 
are made of aluminum, the approximate size of a small 
barrel, with a tap at the bottom to sluice away the used 
water. Evidently, these are among the most valuable and 
effective cooking pieces the School has. The potatoes may 
then be put into a giant, chest-high mixmaster and mashed 
with butter to yield very good mashed potatoes. 

Beans, beets, carrots, etc., are cooked in this manner 
in the boiler, or in the pressure cooker. This is also quite 
interesting. It is about five or six feet high and perhaps 
four feet wide. It is divided into three shelves, each holding 
two aerated pans for vegetables through which passes the 
steam. It is constructed of heavy steel, and its complicated 
latchings give it a very formidable appearance as well as 
efficient performance. 

The meat is bought and stored in the refrigerator ready 
to cook. It is cooked in a large gas oven, which has been 
found more practical than an electric oven. Rib roast is a 
usual cut of meat. The ovens are about eight feet by twelve 
feet, with 18-inch shelves with lowering doors. Any left- 
overs are made into stews or hash. It is surprising how 
little food is wasted on such a large job. For dessert on 
Wednesday afternoon I usually have ice cream. This is 


bought and kept in our deep freeze. The cleaning-up process 
is the same for each meal. 

Let us stroll over and see what there is to see in the 
bakery. This is a self-contained unit about the size of a 
two-man room. It has its own gas ovens there, the same 
type as those in the main kitchen, two large mixmasters, 
and bins for flour, sugar and what have you which slide 
under the work tables. The main trouble here has been 
design, but this is being corrected and improved. This bake- 
shop is a very great improvement over the old kitchen. Most 
of the buns, cookies, etc., are now made here by the staff. 
To make all the bread the School consumes here would be 
possible but very impracticable due to baking difficulties 
involved, so bread is bought ready made. Mrs. Fenton does 
a lot of work here in the bakery. 

This particular evening another first was achieved by 
Mrs. Clarke and Tada (whose aims have been to give us 
more home-style food). They buttered forty loaves of bread 
between them, and served the School with grilled cheese 
sandwiches. Canned cherries and cookies, washed down with 
plenty of milk (the School uses about eighty gallons of 
milk per day!) finished the meal. 

Meals like this, and the time we had fried chicken for 
Sunday dinner, have certainly brought home to us at the 
School the value of our new kitchen better than any other 
method known to man! In this brief sketch I have tried to 
tell you a bit about the people and machinery that have 
made these things possible. Mrs. Clarke and her kitchen 
staff certainly deserve a hearty pat on the back for their 
positive success, and here's hoping they keep up this mag- 
nificent obsession for better food, as PROGRESS GRIPS 


— W. I. C. Binnie, VA. 



3 years ago (1952) Bigside football, captained by the 
Head Prefect, John Gordon, had an undefeated exhibition 
season. . . . An Old Boy, Eric Jackman and Mr. Robertson 
Fortay made a flight to Iceland (not alone) to explore the 
ice cap. . . . The School turned out a rugger team from foot- 
ball and soccer players to take on the Toronto Nomads in 
the School's first competitive game. . . , New refrigeration 
was installed in the School while Pete Phippen and John 
Overholt opened a restaurant on bottom flat Bethime. 

5 years ago (1950) T.C.S. scholars were honoured and 
Canon Lawrence became School chaplain. . . . H. Lafleur 
won the New Boys' race. . . . J. W. Seagram, aided by other 
Old Boys, arranged to have bench coats made in time for 
the Ridley game. . . . There were only four Prefects and one 
House Prefect, but the sixth form was divided into groups 
of duty-sixths which had Prefects' responsibilities. . . . The 
corner stone of the new chapel was laid by G. B. Strathy 
('95-'97) and the service was conducted by Bishop Renison 
('86-'92). . . . Bigside, although they were rated as under- 
dogs, won the Championship in spite of the light line and 
youth. Co-captains K. H. Wright and D. A. P. Smith spurred 
the team on to a 13-1 victory over Ridley in front of a crowd 
of 3,500. 

10 years ago (1945) Mr. Molson left for Brentwood 
School in British Columbia. . . . T.C.S. won the Imperial 
Challenge Shield for marksmanship for the second year in 
a row with a score of 94.593 points out of a possible 100. 
. . . Bigside, with Sinclair as captain, won all exhibition 
games with total points of 145 to 19. 

15 years ago (1940) A record of 76 New Boys entered 
the senior School. . . . T.C.S. boys sent parcels and reading 
material under Mr. P. H. Lewis' guidance to the destroyer 
H.M.C.S. Saguenay from time to time. 

20 years ago (1935) The School won the Strathcona 
Cup for the first time. It is presented in the military district 


to the Cadets who excel in drill, physical training and 

35 yeaj^ ago (1920) Bigside captained by W. O. Jones 
lost to Ridley, S.A.C. and U.C.C. in games and in weight. 
Jones weighed 187 lbs. and the rest of the team averaged 
out to 136 lbs. 


An alarm clattered, a sleepy head yawned, then suddenly 
Bill Jenkins flew out of bed and dashed off to a lawyer's 
office. This scene was re-enacted by numerous T.C.S. boys 
this summer. There were other busy office workers from 
Montreal to Vancouver. Ian Mitchell, Baxter, and Spivak 
all flexed their muscles (?) (if any) in warehouses, while 
Fraenkel and Hyland went to TV stations, leaving Gilbert 
to put up the TV aerials. Boughner used his persuasiveness 
as a clothes salesman in "Billy Boughner's Bargain Base- 
ment." Two of our skilled students worked in labs; Sutton 
tested steel samples and Connell kept rats! 

Many reverted to the great outdoors and the opportun- 
ity to boss little boys about at summer camps. Campbell, 
Long, Ferrie, Seagram, Porritt, Wells, Kennish, Lash, Mc- 
Cullagh and Saunders all went to "Hurontario", Dunbar to 
"Temagami", Overholt to "Onendaga", and Winton to a 
Y.M.C.A. camp. Ralph was a lifeguard at a girls' camp 
(Wow!) and Shier helped Boy Scouts pitch tents. 

Canada's backwoods donated a few jobs as Wood, Hig- 
gins and Armstrong were junior forest rangers, while 
Bradshaw, Vernon and Binnie did a little timber cruising. 
Elager beaver Austin sawed the wood at a lumber mill. Little 
made production reports at a pulp and paper establishment 
oblivious of the fact that Eaton was shinning telegraph 
poles for a Quebec power company. Nanton helped to ex- 
plore for lithium in peaceful north-west Ontario. The only 
craftsman was carpenter Sherwood and the sole factory- 
worker was Chauvin. 


Mike Bums slaved away on a mechanized dairy farm, 
leaving Eric Stephenson and LeMoine to do the old-fash- 
ioned farming. Rindfleisch picked tobacco for Imperial 
(they give pickers free fags!) and two mathematicians, Ham 
and Al Wotherspoon surveyed contours and curves ( ? ) . 
The pick and shovel gang follow surveyors, so here they 
are: brawny Chris Gurney, best cement wheel-barrower ; 
Bert Winnett, chief pneumatic-driller; and worm Budge, all- 
star earth remover. Irwin painted girders so buildings 
wouldn't fall down too fast. 

Last (but not least) are the travellers. "Cy" Outer- 
bridge skippered a "6-metre" sailing boat and Dave Dunlap 
learned to fly for the Air Force. Blaine Bowen was a "grease 
monkey" in a garage as Doug Mitchell escorted underwater 
tourists in Bermuda and English ushered at the C.N.E. 

I must also say a word for all "fresh air inspectors" 
who brought back valuable specimens from all sectors of 
the world — "Well done!" 




Osier, D. S. ('49-'55). Frog came to us from Forest Hill in 1949 
with a hockey stick tucked under his arm, a pair of skates over his 
shoulder and a faraway look in his eyes. He left the J.S. having 
captained the Junior School hockey team and moved into an outstand- 
ing athletic career in the Senior School. He played on Bigside Hockey 
for three of his four years in the S.S. During this time he was 
selected on the all star team at the Lawrenceville Tournament. In his 
final year he captained one of the best hockey teams T.C.S. has yet 
known, and for his hard, clean, fast game he was awarded a distinction 
cap. He also won his Littleside, Middleside, and extra Bigside foot- 
ball colours. However, Frog's interests went beyond athletics and 
he learned eaily the lesson T.C.S. teaches, namely, the more you put 
into something, the more you receive back. At one time or another 
he participated in nearly every extra-curricular activity at the School, 
among them, the Political Science Club, Senior Debating Society and 
Sacristan and Crucifer duties in the Chapel. He was also CO of the 
Cadet Corps. Dave was made Head Prefect in his final year and 
received the Bronze Medal and the Jack Maynard Memorial Trophy 
for leadei'ship in athletics. He is now at Varsity taking his B.A. and 
from there appears to be following in Sir William's footsteps as he 
hopes to take up medicine. Dave's record here speaks for itself and 
we know he will go far in whatever field he may choose. 

Ketchiini. J. A. C ('44-'55). Having spent six successful years in 
the Jrmior School, "Tone" stepped into Brent House in the autumn 
of '51. In his new boy year. Tone entered into many branches of 
School activities, both in the sports and the extra-curricular field. He 
became a member of the band, and was soon a top drummer. In his 
fifth form year, Tony became a Saci'istan and entered the Senior 
Debating Society; he also ran in the Oxford Cup winning a half first 
team colour as well as obtaining a half first team colour in cricket. 
Just at the close of the year Tony was appointed a House Officer. 
In his sixth form year. Tone became a School Prefect, a well deserved 
position indeed. He received his first team soccer colours and came 

first in the Oxford Cup. Tony played on the first hockey team, being 
awarded a half colour. Other activities also kept him busy. He became 
Head Sacristan, president of the Political Science Club and a member 
of the Senior Debating Team. On Speech Day, Tony was awarded the 
Jim McMullen Trophy and the Political Science prize. For two weeks 
in the summer, Tony ran the Trinity Camp and did a wonderful job. 
He also received his pilot's license and is now attending Bishop's 
University. Best of luck, Tone, from all of T.C.S. 

Dona'.d, A. D. ('49-'55). Dink came to the J.S. from Hillfield in 
1949 and played first team football and hockey receiving his colours 
in both. The" next year he graduated to the S.S. and entered Brent 
House. He won the Magee Cup for all-round new-boy athletics as 
well as the F. G. Osier Cup for all-round athletics on Littleside. He 
was also the Junior Aggregate Track winner. In his second year he 
won his Middleside colours in football and hockey and captained the 
Littleside cricket team. Dink was elected a captain once again the 
next fall on Middleside football and that winter he played on the 
Lawrenceville Championship Hockey team winning his half colours. 
The following year he was appointed a House Officer and again he 
did well on Sports Day, finishing third in the Senior track aggregate. 
In his final year Dink was unable to play football and devoted his 
time to coaching one of the Littleside teams. He was elected vice- 
captain of the Bigside hockey team, one of the best teams the School 
has ever had. For his all around activity in this sport and support 
as vice-captain he was awarded a distinction cap. Dink was well 
liked in the School and made friends easily for he was never too 
busy to stop and chat with other boys. On Inspection Day he was 
CO of the Brent House Cadet Corps which he led to victory in the 
drill competition. Dink is planning on taking an engineering course 
and we all wish him the best of success. 

Young, R. I. K. ('49-'55). Oz sprinted up to the Junior School 
from Talara, Peru, in the fall of 1949. Though he remained thei-e 
only one year he received his full colours in Football. Hockey and 
Cricket and because of his contribution to Junior School life in all 
aspects, he won the Patterson Cup. The next year Oz found himself 
in the midst of Senior School activities in which he took great in- 
terest from 1950-1955. Though he received his Littleside colours in 
cricket and football he soon showed us that he excelled in the latter. 
His first year in the Senior School saw him win his Middleside colours 
and in his last year he also won the most valuable player award. On 
Sports Day one could not help but notice how many records and 
points for Brent House Oz made in Track and Field. In his final 
year Oz was made a School Prefect and in this position conducted 
himself very ably. Through his efforts in Cadet work he won the 
Best Cadet award in his final year. We fondly say "Good-bye" to Oz 
but do so knowing that he will continue to make good this year at 
the University of Miami. 


Christie, J. F. ('53-'55). Jock enteied the ranks of Bethune House 
in the fall of 1953. Immediately he established himself as one of 
the few freshmen to make Bigside football. Jock was successful in 
winning half team colours, but this wasn't enough, so he decided 
to come back for his first team coloius. Jock proved to be one of 
the most valuable players on Bigside with emphasis on his defensive 
work. Jock also played a bit of hockey. In his first yeai' he won 
full Middleside colours. Last year he decided that Middleside needed 
h;m more than Bigside and also a friend (who incidentally was the 
coach) had offeied him the position of captain. In this office Jock 
led the team to many an impressive victory. Jock had the magic 
something to put spirit into the teams he played for. Jock's constant and good spirit will be missed thi-oughout the School, 
but we all wish him the best in his .science course at Queen's. 

Newhind, K. F. ('52-'55). Karl "groped" his way into Bethune 
House in 1952 and tossed away his white cane when he was elected 
by the new buys as their representative in the School Coimcil. Karl 
was a good running guard on the football team and as well a top- 
notch spring-board diver. In his first year, he was prevented from 
competing in the Little Big Four diving competition due to an ill- 
ness. But he fought back the following year to take the title as best 
diver. In his final year Karl co-captained the football team, but un- 
fortunately because of an injury to his leg, was unable to play during 
the season. He assisted, however, with the coaching and helped put 
the team in shape. Karl was also captain of the swimming team and 
was awarded the Pat Osier prize for swimming. In his three years 
at T.C.S. Karl proved himself to be both a leader and an athlete and 
in his final year he was a School Prefect. Here's hoping you keep 'half-Wellingtons' on the ground, Karl, and keep a sharp look- 
out in front of you. We all wish you the best of success. 

Saegert, P. F. M. ('50-'55). "Sag" bounded into the J.S. in the 

fall of 1950 and immediately became distinguished by his red hair 
and his jovial attitude. On leaving the J.S. he had won three first 
team colours, some scholastic prizes and was the co-winner of the 
Hamilton Bronze Medal. As a new boj', he entered Brent House, 
achieving triple Littleside colours and scholastic prizes again. He 
a'.so became a Junior Debater. The following year, while he advanced 
to three Half First team colours and entered the Senior Debating 
Society, the Dramatic Society, the Record staff, the Choir and the 
School Council as secretary, he still managed to win scholastic prizes. 
In his sixth form year he earned full first team colours in hockey 
and football and became a Sacristan and an ardent member of the 
entertainment committee. For all his fine endeavouis Sag became a 
School Prefect and on Speech Day he won the Founder's Science Prize. 
This fall he enteied the Queen's faculty of Mechanical Engineering. 
He was always among those who believe "the very best goes all the 


Massey, A. D. ('SO-'SS). A small "Mouse" scratched at the door 
of Bethune and was let in to become one of our best Prefects and 
Latin ( ? ) scholars, founding the notorious "Massey List." From 
1952 to '55 he was on the first team squash, captaining the '54 and 
'55 teams to the Little Big Fovu' Championships, for which he received 
a distinction cap. Also in 1955 he won the Ontario, and the Toi'onto 
and District Squash Championships. For '52 and '53 he claimed the 
senior title. His studies were equally successful, as he won two Pro- 
ficiency prizes and the VIB maths prize. His outside intei-ests were 
in the Junior and Senior Debating, and this background no doubt 
helped him to make his famous impromptu speeches. Like Macnamara 
he became "Leader of the Band," where he exerted himself in the 
bugle coips which I'eceived high praise on Inspection Day. We send 
Mouse our best wishes, hoping that his career will be as successful 
as his years at T.C.S. 


Carsley, T. R. ('52-'55), Tim came to Trinity from Montreal's 
Selwyn House. Right from the start of his fifth fonn year he began 
to take an interest in the School. He played on Littleside "B" foot- 
ball, became a member of the Senior Debating team and the French 
Club. In his second year he made the Little Big Four tennis team, 
the Senior Debating team, and was a member of the French Club and 
Political Science Club. Tim also reached the semi-finals of the Senior 
Tennis tournament, and on Speech Day was awarded the Religious 
Knowledge prize for the sixth form. In Tim's final year at the School, 
he was again a member of the tennis team; this time they were 
Little Big Four Champions. He was voted Vice-President of the French 
Club and Secretary of the Debating Society whose teams won the 
Inter-School Debating Trophy. He again spent his Sunday evenings 
with Mr. Hodgetts as a member of the Political Science Club. Tim was 
also Sacristan in the Chapel, and did an excellent job as Editor-in-Chief 
of the "Record." Apart from all these activities, Tim found time to 
captain Middleside "B" hockey and again reach the semi-finals of 
the tennis tournament. He achieved the rank of Flight Sergeant in 
the Cadet Corps, and Flight Lieutenant in the House Drill squad where 
he did an excellent job. On Speech Day Tim was rewarded for his 
hard work by winning the French Prize for Set 11, the Gavin Ince Prize 
for the best short story contribution to the "Record," the Armour 
Memorial Prize and the George Ingles Prize for classics in the sixth 
form. For this outstanding contribution to the School Tim was made 
a House Prefect, which position he filled very well. Tim is hoping 
to enter his second year Arts at McGill this year, where we wish 
him the best of luck, and are looking forward to a visit from him. 

Giffen, J. P. ('50-'55). The "Moose" strolled into Brent House in 
the fall of 1950 and immediately established himself by playing Little- 
side football, Littleside hockey and gym, and getting colours in hockey 
and gym. In his second year he earned colours in Littleside football,

Middleside gym and hockey. He was also a junior debater. When 
School opened the next fall, "the Moose" was on Middleside football 
and got a half colour on the First Hockey team. Pete played football 
his third year for Bigside, getting a half colour and a full colour on 
Bigside hockey. This year he moved up to the Senior Debating 
Society and worked for his third year with Mr. Bishop's stage-hands. 
His last year put Pete in sixth form and once again on the Senior 
Debating team. He won a full colour in Bigside football and hockej', 
a Distinction Cap in the latter, and was appointed a House Prefect. 
The School sinceiely wishes the best of iuck to him for his years at 
U. of T. and those following. 

Goodman. D. I. ('50-'55). Ian came to T.C.S. in 1950 and in his 
new boy year won his colour in junior basketball and played on the 
Littleside football team. The following year he played for Littleside 
hockey and was captain of the Junior Basketball team. He also stood 
out as a sprinter on the track team. During his 1953-'54 year Ike got 
his Middleside football and Senior Basketball colours. He was on the 
Little Big Four Squash team and again worked with the track team 
in the spring. When he reached fifth form Ike played centre on 
Bigside football, was on the Championship Squash Team, and served 
as a Corporal in the Cadet Coi-ps. In his senior year he again played 
centre on Bigside football and did a good job holding the team to- 
gether. That winter he was Vice-Captain of the Championship Squash 
Team and was appointed a House Prefect. In the Cadet Corps Ike 
was promoted to WO II and was a Flight Leader for the victorious 
Brent House Squadron. We all wish him success for the coming years. 

Martin, A. K. R. ('50-'55). Tony rolled into Brent House in 1950 
with a pair of chop-sticks in his hand singing. "What do you know, 
Joe? Just got back from Tokyo!" He wasted no time in showing he 
was a good swimmer and soccer player. He was fond of singing and 
worked faithfully with the choir for three years. He could often be 
seen organizing a sing-song as a Glee Club practice, and in his last 
year he was president of the Glee Club. Tony also had a "flare" for 
art and he often helped paint the dance decorations and the stage 
sets, serving as President of the Art Club his final yeai'. In this year, 
too. Tony was awarded both his Bigside Soccer and Swimming colours 
and was made a House Prefect. The Political Science Club, Dance 
Committee and the "Record" Staff were a few of the many things 
to which he contributed his time. In the Cadet Coi-ps he did an able 
job, both for the School Squadron and also for a victorious Brent 
House Squadron. Tony w^as well liked here at the School and he 
did a top-notch job as Minister of Slgnposters and Propaganda. Be- 
tween those sips of saki and rice pies we'd like to fit in our wi.shes 
for good luck. Tony, in the years to come. 

Scott, H. M. ('51 -'55). Sandy smashed his way into Brent House 
from Lakefield in 1951 and proved his ability with a racquet at the 
start by winning both the Beginners' Squash and the Junior Tennis 

Championships. He also won his extia colours on Littleside soccer. 
In his second year he played Littleside "B" football and Littleside 
cricket and was runner-up in the Junior tennis championship. The 
next year Sandy played Middleside football, Middleside squash and 
was voted most improved player on Middleside cricket. He came out 
on top in the junior tennis championship and was senior tennis runner- 
up as well. Sandy captained the Little Big Four championship tennis 
team in his last year and managed to play Bigside football as well. 
He played Bigside squash and was made a House Prefect that winter. 
Aside from his ability in sports, Sandy excelled academically and was 
usually at the top of his class. He won the Governor General's medal 
for Mathematics and was awarded in both third and fifth form the 
F. A. Bethune Scholarship. Sandy did a top-notch job as Sports Editor 
for the "Record" and was vice-president of the Senior Debating Society. 
He devoted much of his time to the Library, the Political Science Club 
of which he was secretary and also the Dramatic Society. Sandy 
took an active and willing part on all the phases of life here and 
contributed much to the School. He's now at Queens in the faculty 
of Medicine. We all send him our best wishes and hope to see him 
back at the School often in the future. 

Spioer, P. M. ('52-'55). Witty, a good sport and always ready for 
a good joke, Phil was a person who. once met, was never forgotten. 
He came to us from Hamilton in September of '52 and made the 
Littleside Soccer Team in the first term but with this good start 
he met with a very painful injury. On the night of November 30, he 
had a bad fall which left him temporarily disabled. We shall never 
forget the determination with which he overcame his handicap in 
those first weeks after returning to School. In his second year, Phil 
devoted his spare time to School activities taking over the Business 
staff of "The Record" and reorganizing it, a feat for which he was 
awarded a special prize. He also became treasurer of the Political 
Science Club and Stage Electrician. In his last year "Pop Spicer." as 
he became known to all, really came into his own, adding new life 
and colour to all of the School organizations. At the beginning of 
the year he became manager of Bigside Football and also was made 
a House Prefect. He was also an active member of the Political 
Science Club where his speeches on the news of the week were eagerly 
awaited. By far his best contribution was that to "The Record" 
where as Business Manager he put his knowledge of business organiza- 
tion to boosting the sale of ads to an all time high. We wish him 
the best of luck in his business course at Cornell and so. a last salute 
to this committee man par excellence, "All Hail" Phil. 

ten Broek, E. H. ('49-'55). Edo arrived at the Junior School in 
the Lent Term of 1949 and immediately established himself as a keen 
Mthlete and an ardent scholar. He played on the first soccer, football 
and cricket teams, becoming captain of soccer in his final year. Be- 
sides doing well in the classroom, Edo held his own as Editor-in- 
Chief of the Junior School Record. In the fall of 1952. Edo became a 


Bethunite, entering as a new boy into almost every phase of School 
life. He won half first team soccer colours, Middleside ciicket colours 
and the name of a keen enthusiast in the Rabbit Hockey League. 
Extia-curricular activities also enticed Edo into joining the French 
Club, the Diamatic Society, the Recoid Staff and the Junior Debating 
Society. On top of this, he was a librarian and acted in the French 
play at Christmas. The following year saw Edo win his full first 
team soccer colour and become again a leading member of Middle- 
side cricket. He maintained his other interests as well. Edo's Sixth 
Form year took him into almost everything. He became a Sacristan, 
was elected President of the French Club and President of the Dramatic 
Society. He also joined the Political Science Club and became Record 
Editor of School News. Athletically, he captained the first soccer 
team and earned Middleside squash colours For all his fine endeavours, 
Edo vt'as made a House Prefect and won many prizes on Speech Day 
including the Head Boy and Chancellor's Prize, the Lieutenant 
Governor's Medal for English, a trophy for Dramatics and form prizes 
in Latin, French, History, and Spanish. Edo is entering Queen's 
University, hoping some day to become a Canadian and enter the 
Department of External Affairs. To Edo, we say, "Hasta la Vista." 

Trowsdale. W. W. ('51-'55). Right from the word "go'* when Bill 
joined us here in '51 as a Brent House new boy, to his last year in 
'55, he always took a keenly active interest in every sort of School 
activity. Bill was not satisfied with his Littleside hockey and foot- 
ball colours but strove on in the following years to win his colours 
in these sports on Middleside and Bigside. The track team remembers 
him as a very eager and equally successful member having in '52 
become the junior aggregate winner and in '54 the winner of the 
senior aggregate. His other interests included membership of the 
French Club, Debating Society and the Record Staff. As a member 
of VIA in his last year Bill was deservingly appointed a House Prefect. 
From all at T.C.S., the verv best. Bill. 


Angus, B. R. ('50-'5.5). It was in 1950 that Brox breezed into 
the School and quickly acquired a prominent position. He took a 
great interest in our library, serving as librarian for four years, and 
Head Librarian his last year. He was an ardent member of the Photo- 
graphic Society of which he was co-pi-esident in '54 and president 
in '55. His leadership in photography was shown when he was made 
"photographic editor" of the "Record" in '54. Brox also took a liberal 
share of prizes on Speech Day. In '51 he won a mathematics prize 
in Second Form; in '52 he tied for first place in the photographic 
competition and in '53. '54 and '55 he stood second; in '54 he won 
the prize for the best picture in the "Record." Brox also took a keen 
interest in sports, winning his extra Middleside soccer colour. In his 
free time he was often seen banging a ball about in the squash 


courts. In his last year. Brox was one of the outstanding members 
in the Senior Debating Society. The School sends the best of wishes 
to Brook with the hope that he may do as well in the future as he 
did at T.C.S. 

Bedford- Jones, P. E. ('54-'55). B-J entered Brent House after 
Christmas 1954 where he always maintained a high scholastic stand- 
ing and entered into several School activities. Thus in his final year 
he was made a House Officer. He played Middleside "B" football 
and Rabbit L/eague hockey and was a Sacristan and a member of 
the Political Science Club. We wish him the best of luck in his 
University career. 

Cape, J. C. ('52-'55). Mr. Sonshine, the free-spending, non-budget- 
ed, questionable genius of the Argo football team, came to T.C.S. last 
year to see the suitability of the School as a summer training camp 
for his team. He left with his car windows decorated with various 
newspaper accounts of the numerous, healthy Argo defeats of the 
previous season. The present epitomized the fanatical "Frenchie" 
Chris Cape. Throughout his rampage at T.C.S., the theme of our 
Cartierville extrovert was strictly pro-French. A radical in every 
way (one of the leaders of the late BTS) he was a very intelligent 
guy and continues his studies with an Arts Course at Bishop's College 
this fall. Cartch was a stand-by on the tennis team where he was a 
half-first team colour man for two years. He also gained Middleside 
colours in football and hockey and belonged to the French and 
Science Clubs. For all his qualities of individuality, he was appointed 
a House Officer in his last year. He will long be fondly remembered 
within these sober grounds. 

Christie, J. W. ('53-'55). On a fateful night last winter, a fella 
stepped into the limelight at one of our infamous variety nights, and 
delivered a song. His voiced wavered, quivered, rose, fell, almost col- 
lapsed, but finished up in grand style as the first official rendition 
of "Pass the Udder Udder Over To My Udder Brudder" was given at 
T.C.S. Although this ditty has been sung far too many times since, 
no one has approached his incomparable style. This young gentle- 
man, whose star was born, was Alf Puelles, known on his birth 
certificate as James W. Christie. In athletics the Reverend was a 
hit. He won a Distinction Cap in First Team hockey and full colours 
on Bigside football. He made fools out of more doctors than even 
the Kinsey Report when he chucked a cricket ball 115 yards on 
Sports Day. An outstanding athlete to say the least. Due to hia 
participation in School activities, he was made a House Officer in 
his last year. With his Senioi' Matric clutched in his hot little hand, 
he enters Western this fall, and we might remind him that nothing 
could make us happier than a vLsit in the near future. 


Cowan. F. B. M. ('SS-'oS). In the fall of '52 Brian walked into 
Brent House carrying a basketball in one hand and a bugle in the 
other. He soon gained renown as an artist in both fields. "Hint- 
ball" played in the Cadet band, the School orchestra, and was a 
member of the basketball team for three years. He was elected 
Captain (asst. coach) of the basketball team and won the most valuable 
player award last yeai'. Scholastically, he excelled in Spanish, and 
he won the V Form Spanish prize his second year. In his final year 
he was deservedly made a House Officer and he carried his Bigside 
soccer colour. He was also a member of the "Record" staff, and 
made the track team. Brian plans to study architecture at Cornell 
University. We know his happy natuie will win him friends there 
as it did here, and we wish him the best of success. 

Uavies, >Iichael ('50-'55). Mike, one of our Kingston scholars, 
came to us from the Junior School handily winning his Littleside 
gym colour and becoming a bugler in the hand in his new boy year. 
Soon, however, he turned his athletic talents in the gym to the foot- 
ball field and won full Middleside colours. Mike's interest in School 
life led him to join the Record staff and the Political Science Club 
of which he was an able member for two years. In his final year he 
achieved the position of Sergeant in the band while being made a 
House Officer in Bethune House. Mike may well be remembered for 
his ability as an electrician in the stage crew. To you, Mike, we 
wish the best of luck, be it in the "Kingston Whig Standard" or 

Hardy, H. {'53-'55). "Hay goodie" first joined the T.C.S. ranks 
in '53 as a fifth former and immediately fell in step with the School 
routme. That fall he played Middleside soccer and was elected Vice- 
Captain, receiving full Middleside colours as well. The winter of '54 
he spent playing basketball and in the following autumn he earned 
his extra Bigside soccer colour. However, the most outstanding of 
Haygood's features was his love of music. An excellent pianist, it 
was under his direction that an extremely good School orchestra 
was formed adding even more life and fun to the "sing-songs" and 
variety shows. Being a great entertainer himself, he was an im- 
portant member of the entertainment committee. "An excellent 
student and an ideal sport" are words which do not flatter Haygoodie 
in the least. He has now enrolled in the faculty of Arts at Trinity 
College, Toronto. All the best from T.C.S.. Haygood! 

Rilburn. P. M. ('Sl-'SS). Among the new faces which appeared 
at the Senior School in 1951 was that of one Pete Kilburn. Having 
the good fortune to be appointed to Bethune House, he became so 
inspired that he joined many extra-curricular groups such as the 
Record, French Club, Political Science Club and Debating Society. 
He had proved himself to be quite a capable guy by his sixth form 
year and consequently was made secretary of the French Club, a 
gifted participant of the Debating Team, Literary Editor of this 
Illustrious magazine, and above all, a holder of a very good Senior 


Matric certificate. Never too much of a natural in athletics, he 
worked hard at it and at the end of his T.C.S. career had earned 
Bigside colours in soccer and half Bigside colours in squash and 
cricket. His appointment as a House Officer in his final year came 
as no surprise . . . and here's hoping he slips back for a visit soon. 
Bonne chance! 

Lash, J. R, M. ('51-'55). J-L arrived at Brent House in the fall of 
1951 and soon settled down to a comfortable existence at T.C.S. He 
was a keen enthusiast at football, playing Littleside and Middleside, 
captuiing the latter colours in his last year. During the winter he 
played hockey for Bigside getting his half colour in his last year. 
In his new boy year he won the award for the Best Novice Boxer 
and in his third year he was chosen as the best boxer in the School. 
For his rimning in the Oxford Cup he was awarded a half first team 
colour. In cricket he won full Middleside colours and in his final 
year was chosen the most enthusiastic sportsman in the School. For 
all this, and his academic achievements he was made a House Officer. 
We him the best of luck in his course at U. of T. 

Yorath, C. J. ('51-'55). Chris rode into the Senior School in 1951, 
coming to us from the West - Calgary, Alberta - God's country as 
he calls it. He played on the Littleside football team during his first 
term and proved himself to be an excellent swimmer, swimming on 
the team for three years and coaching the junior team in his last 
year. "Uppie" served four useful years on the Record staff. He sang 
in the Choir foi- two years and was a distinguished member of the 
debating team. To add to his success of his last year, he was made 
a House Officer and was on the Box-Horse team. To cap everything, 
he won the Hugel Prize in Geology for the second year in a row. 
He is now enrolled in the University of Alberta. The best wishes of 
the School follow him. 


Audain. IVliohael Jame« ('52-'55). "What!, What!, What!!" boomed 
an austere voice from behind me. Yes, it was the great M.J. him- 
self. M.J. also known as "the Count" came to the Senior School in 
'52 from the University School at Victoria, B.C. In this first year 
he made both Littleside .soccer and Littleside basketball and among 
other things was a member of the Photographic Society. In his second 
year. M.J. really came into his own playing Middleside soccer and 
acting in both plays of the year. He was an unusually good actor. 
In his la.=;t year with us he contributed greatly to the Dramatic 
Society taking the responsibility of secretary and pei-forming in both 
plays. He also gave his assistance to the Record Staff and par- 
ticipated in the Debating Society where one frequently heard him 
quote Napoleon. Mike's real spark of genius, though, was in the field 
of politics; to say the least, he was a prominent member of the Political 
Science Club. Mike is planning to take up Law at the University of 
British Columbia. As a last salute, the School says "All Hail," M.J.! 
and good luck, Mike. 




An ever increasing crescendo of sound, 

Rising, moaning, falling. 

Whistling, rustling and calling. 

A maelstrom of leaves whirl round 

And the thin white daggers 

Of diagonal rain run down the sweating cement. 

Figures caught without coats 
Running, falling, tripping 
Slipping, cursing and yelling. 
A mass of indiscriminate bodies 
Telling, spreading, the Fall's lament. 

— D. J. V. Fitz-Gerald, VIM. 


What constitutes a doctor? Why should he care about 
you when most other people think only of themselves? First 
of all he has a tradition behind him of unselfish service 
to mankind. If he is ever to succeed he can't think of him- 
self or of his own skin. His is a job, where after ten years 
of study and preparation, he starts off making less than 
any plumber or electrician who has been working all that 
time and already has a wife and children. He receives little 


thanks for his work except complaints that his fees are 
too high. He is on call night and day if someone needs him. 
He may work long hard hours in the public ward and not 
receive a cent. He does not have a dramatic job; the doctor 
of the movies and soap operas doesn't exist. Most of his 
work is hard messy work which sometimes fails. After it 
all, he has to confront tearful relatives who inwardly blame 
him for the loss of their loved one. However, all this does 
not bother a doctor for he is not in his profession for money, 
glory or ease. He is there for the satisfaction of seeing 
someone recover from a near deadly disease due to his treat- 
ment. He is there because the odd word of appreciation 
or the relieved look in a patient's eye when he appears, 
makes up for the countless hours of toil with no reward. 
His is a self-satisfying life because he is helping other people 
to operate at top efficiency, not trying to blow them from 
the face of the earth. 

When a fellov/ human is in trouble, be he black, white 
or yellow, Jewish, Protestant or Catholic, American, Rus- 
sian or German a doctor will help him. His purpose is to 
help mankind — not simply one segment of it. What we need 
in this day and age are more people dedicated to mankind. 
For in this way only do we achieve true happiness. And 
happy people make a happy world.

The harvest season in Canada has always been a tim« 
of unequalled beauty and abundance. I was reminded and 
impressed once again of this fact as I stood in the middle 
of a mellowed grassy field on the edge of the St. Lawrence 
river just outside Quebec City. It was a fresh October eve- 
ning and my hungry eyes seemed to snatch in all there was 
to see in that glorious setting. I gazed towards the crouch- 
ing mountain fortress of the Laurentians over a colourful 
■tretch of rich farm fields. Some were covered with deep 


green fall wheat, others with dull brown corn husks scat- 
tered among great orange pumpkins and many stacked with 
endless rows of ripe golden wheat. It was as if Nature had 
stretched a great checkered quilt from the reedy river bank 
up to the rolling hills tinted with the blue haze of distance. 
Scattered here and there among the fields clearly separated 
by weather-beaten snake fences stood solid and cosy look- 
ing farm cottages. In each cellar, I knew, was stored a large 
winter's supply of vegetables and fruit and the yards out- 
side were stacked with piles of fire-wood and cattle fodder. 
Town and coimtry people alike would be able to eat well 
until next harvest on the food produced from this rich farm- 
land. All the required wood and paper products would be 
made from the unending forest land which blankets the 
distant laurentian slopes and the large demand of industrial 
progress for minerals would be met by the almost infinite 
underground deposits. This is Canada at harvest time and 
our reason for Thanksgiving services in our churches. 

Yet, although this is a typical picture of our country 
as I saw it that evening, it is not the picture of our world. 
In many eastern countries floods and famines are in the 
people's minds even as we enjoy our harvest. Millions have 
never experienced a full stomach, the taste of a good slab 
of bread or a great juicy apple. Drinking-water is often 
precious and rain a rarity. China and India, overcrowded 
and desperate for more farmland, are every day fighting 
off the dreadful advance of hunger, poverty and disease. 
It is in many ways a losing battle, as a country's wealth 
comes off its land, and they have not enough suitable for 
farming. So let us share what we can, appreciate what we 
have and say thanks for another year of assured plenty. 

—J. A. H. Vernon, VIB. 



Where birds make nests, 
And sleepy bears fill hollow logs, 
The fire strikes with awesome form: 
Burning, scorching, blackening 
The greens and reds and ambers 
Of the tall majestic timbers, 
Without a single warning 
Or lull before the storm. 

The creatures of the forest 
Flee the crushing fire; 
The brown bear lumbers off 
And the young deer steal away, 
The otters and the beavers hide, 
While helpless rabbits leap 
To dodge the scalding flames, 
And owls blink with troubled eyes. 

Then all looks cold and grey. 

And no birds sing nor squirrels play; 

Deserted, for the new born deer 

No longer take their wavering steps. 

Nor flat-tailed beavers build their dams; 

Now all stands stark and motionless, 

Yet, in the ashes, blooms a rose. 

— D. L. C. Dunlap, VIA. 


It was Saturday afternoon when we, along with three 
hundred thousand other curious people, went to the Cana- 
dian National Exhibition. From the moment we entered 
the Princess gates we were lost. To the right and to the 
left, ahead of us and behind us, pink faces passed, a seething 
mass of humanity intent upon seeing all they could before 
the gates closed at midnight. 


We drifted with the great currents of the moving mass 
and got caught in the eddies formed by a man in a booth 
in the middle of the flow. The great waters swirled about 
him as he held the flotsam and drifting twigs with his 
raucous voice, booming the wonders of his sponsor's new 

And then the flow caught us up and we were plunged 
again into its swirling turmoil. A truck appeared, its horn 
plowing the waters of humanity as a great ship's prow sends 
a tidal wave to the sides. There was a murmur of annoy- 
ance as the waters closed behind its stern; it vanished from 

Somehow or other we drifted to the bank of buildings 
on our left and were caught by a curious cross current which 
flung us into the depths of a series of side shows. The 
gaudy walls of the canyon through which we flowed depicted 
the usual freaks consisting of many-headed-men, sword 
swallowers, plunging flaming swords into the innermost 
portion of their digestive systems, and the usual pit of 
snakes and multi-coloured vipers all of which were meant 
to frighten you out of your wits. In front of each stood a 
little man with a big voice or a bigger man with a bigger 
voice and they all beckoned you within, but still the current 
flowed on. In the middle of the flow were square little half 
houses which sent out their sticky sweet odours of candy 
floss, taffy apples and pop-corn but they too failed to hold 
the flow. 

From thence we were carried to the midway. It was 
growing darker now and the huge monsters which hurled 
the brave around and around a rotating axis were lit up 
giving you the sensation of being in the centre of a fourth 
of July display. Oh, they went round, they whirled, they 
rotated, they flew, they went up and down, forwards, back- 
wards, head over heels and around and about over and 
over up and down and faster and faster and all the while 
the same beating, garbled music rent the air until finally 
you felt yourself going mad. 


And then all was quiet and peaceful once more. We 
had drifted away from the awful racket and whirling lights ; 
how nice it was to feel the cool air on our face as we waited 
for the streetcar to take us, exhausted, home. 

— M. K. Bonnycastle, VIA. 


Strangely different in so many small, sometimes in- 
finitesimally, small ways, there is a complete variance in 
atmosphere from the feel of the newer brick to the sound 
of a "wireless" in another room. The melancholy moan of 
the train — a sound peculiar to this side of the Atlantic, so 
different from the officious screech of the smaller less com- 
plex engines which twist their noisy way between smaller 
distances. No longer the consumptive cough of a small black 
car starting after a frosty night; only the direct soft in- 
stantaneous hum of their streamlined counterpart. No super- 
charged silver bang and hearty tweed cap of an English 
amateur; a suave smoothness of serge and chrome prevails 
here. Brighter colours drape the debonair white-collar 
bureaucrat in Toronto, the exact opposite to the dull 
mediocrity of the besmutted daily-breader, who, with clock- 
like mechanism, arrives at his London desk at nine. There 
is a different twang in the speaking voice of Canada which 
is such a contrast to the more meticulous pointed pronuncia- 
tion of the English, either heard in conversation or over 
the wireless. Here they advertise with never ending regu- 
larity that "Mackenzie's wieners are the juiciest and most 
succulent in Canada" or that "Wisp washes whiter than 
snow" speaking always with an obsequious heartiness, and 
interrupting in a maddening fashion a jazz session or the 
harmonious strains of a Bach fugue. 

An odd, in some ways rather relieving lack of antiquity 
prevails. A feeling of only four generations of settled 
existence, which creates the void that there must be, where 
civilization has come so recently — a living antithesis of 


countless decades and few. The countryside superficially 
looks, here in Ontario, much the same as many places in 
England; but the trees turn deeper and make a larger range 
of shades in the fall. So many expressions are alien to an 
Englishman, the "fall" being a good example of a remark- 
ably explicit noun compared to our "autumn." The language 
is filled with lively Americanisms, which build the sense of 
humour, in many ways more comprehensible, but essentially 
different, from the more subtle, sarcastic understatement 
in the humour of Britain. "Punch" shows this clearly when 
contrasted with "The New Yorker." 

The night clamps down its furtive darkness in the same 
way but its sounds vary. Crickets sing and chirp in the 
grass and the train tramples its heavy feet and groans. 
Over there the night has more birds and the train seems an 
intrusion but here it is perfectly at home. Perhaps this is 
the epitome of the comparison. England lives in the past 
and just keeps up with the present, Canada has no past to 
keep up with, but a future. 

— D. J. X. Fit«-G«rald, VIM. 






If any Old Boy returned to the School on a week-day 
he would be surprised to see 180 fully-equipped boys play- 
ing football. During the summer it was decided that the 
whole School would play football until half term. At first 
this naturally brought many complaints from former soccer 
players, but after three weeks of our Canadian football, even 
the Bermudians admit there is something to our game. 

Whether the fact that Mr. Hodgetts had an extra 70 
converted soccer players to choose from or not, he has 
again come up with a strong First Team. Up to Thanks- 
giving week-end, they have won three out of four games. 
Middleside, this year coached by Mr. Lawson, seems to be 
developing into a well-balanced squad. As usual, Mr. 
Landry's Littleside squad is up to standard, winning all 
games they have played so far. We all wish them luck and 
hope that the First Team brings back the Little Big Four 
championship after four years of absence. 

With the School teams taking care of only seventy boys, 
the big question was what to do with the other 100 eager 
players. It was decided that they would be organized into 
two leagues. This was done under the able direction of Mr. 
Armstrong and Mr. Scott. The School purchased 100 full 
sets of equipment and thus it is now possible to play two 
league games every day. Each of the six teams has a master 
in charge who does everything from coaching to filling in 
as waterboy, and throughout the School, I think it is gen- 
erally agreed that both masters and boys, even though 
dubious at first, are now enjoying themselves thoroughly. 

Once again, the spirit of the School is high and we are 
looking forward to a most promising athletic year.

At Port Hope, September 25. Won S§-11. 

In their first game of the season T.C.S. romped to a 
convincing 39-11 victory over Oshawa. 

T.C.S. kicked off to open the game and a few plays 
later knifed through the Oshawa line to block a kick. Then, 
from the Oshawa twenty, Dunbar scored on an end sweep 
behind some good blocking by Dunlap. Winnett converted, 
and Trinity led 6-0. However, in the dying minutes of the 
first quarter, fumbles by Trinity resulted in two Oshawa 
touchdowns by Voage and Tippett, but only one convert 
was complete. So at the end of the quarter it was 11-6 for 

In the second quarter Hyland started T.C.S. rolling on 
a spectacular 50 yard gallop around the end for a major. 
The convert was good putting the home team in front 12-11. 
T.C.S. scored again, a few minutes later, as the squad seem- 
ed to bottle Oshawa up. A pass from Campbell to Bums 
was good for twenty yards. Hyland took the ball on an 
end sweep for twenty-five yards and from there Campbell 
plunged eleven yards for the touchdown. The convert was 
good. Again the home team broke through to break up an 
Oshawa kick and on the next play Hyland passed to Long 
for a converted major. Without letting up. Trinity con- 
tinued the attack. Hyland ran thirty yards, when he couldn't 
find a receiver. Then, Campbell passed to Hyland and Long 
respectively, the second pass resulting in a touchdown. The 
convert was good, and at half-time the score stood at 30 
to 11 for T.C.S. 

In the third quarter, it was a see-saw battle; the only 
points being scored on a field-goal by Winnett. 

In the fourth quarter T.C.S. once more dominated the 
play. Hyland took the ball around the right end for twenty- 
five yards, and Campbell followed suit, plowing through 
centre, for the final major. The convert was good, making 
the final score read 39-11 for Trinity. 



At Peterboroug^h, September 28. Lost 10-8. 

In their second exhibition game Bigside travelled to 
Peterborough where they lost a close, hard-fought contest. 
Although playing shorthanded due to injuries, they showed 
they possessed good depth on the bench. 

Peterborough kicked off to the School and Burns ran 
it back to the forty. The ball changed hands twice before 
the Peterborough squad moved up to the T.C.S. ten, where 
on the next play Livingstone ran wide for the first score 
after three minutes of play. The convert failed. Later in 
the quarter, on successive carries by Hall and Dunbar, and 
two "Campbell to Jenkins" passes, the ball was advanced 
to the Peterborough four yard line. Here the School failed 
to score when Campbell was stopped on the goal-line. It 
was now Peterborough's ball on the one yard line. On the 
next play Livingstone was caught for a safety by Proctor 
and the score read 5-2 for Peterborough, as the half ended. 

To start the second half Hall intercepted a Peterbor- 
ough pass on the Trinity seven yard line to halt the only 
scoring threat in the third quarter. The fourth stanza 
opened with Peterborough intercepting a pass on the 
Trinity fifteen. A plunge carried the ball to the five and 
on the next play Brown carried it over. Again the convert 
was wide, leaving the score 10-2 in favour of Peterborough. 
With ten minutes remaining the School caught fire ad- 
vancing up the field on long gains by Dunbar and Hall. 
With seven minutes rem.aining Dunbar went over from 
five yards out and Burns converted. The School tried des- 
perately to get the winning points but time ran out with 
Peterborough on top 10-8. 

Dunbar, Robb, Burns and Campbell played well for 
the School while Livingstone and Brown stood out for the 



At Fort Hope, October 1. Won 23-6. 

In a hard-hitting game Bigside downed the Malvern 
squad 23-6. 

In the first quarter T.C.S. was given the edge with 
excellent blocking by Ferrie and Nanton and running by 
Dunbar as he circled the end for an unconverted touch- 
down. For the remainder of the first half both teams played 
good steady ball with the only score being a kick for one 
point by Burns. 

Early in the second half Dunbar again went wide to 
score and Burns converted. However, Malvern was not 
to be denied as they took possession of the ball at mid-field 
and marched on several short but effective passes for a 
converted touchdown. Early in the fourth quarter the 
Malvern squad made a spirited goal line stand as they held 
the School for three plays. However, after this the Malvern 
team crumpled under the hard-hitting T.C.S. line as they 
put on the pressure to roll up the score. This time Lash 
plunged over for a converted touchdown. Then, with time 
running out, Bonnycastle intercepted a Malvern pass and 
went all the way for an unconverted touchdown. 

The game on the whole was one of the most spirited 
early season contests that has been played at T.C.S. in 
many a year. As always with the good hard tackling of 
the Trinity line there were numerous fumbles. T.C.S. made 
three recoveries by Seagram, Dunlap and Nanton, while 
Malvern made only one. Malvern excelled in kicking with 
some of the best punts ever seen at the School. However, 
the sharp blocking and determined drive of Bigside proved 
to be too much for the Malvern squad. The outstanding 
players for T.C.S. were Campbell, Burns and Dunbar, while 
the Malvern punter deserves to be congratulated for his 
outstanding play. 



T.C.S. vs. OSHAWA 
At Port Hope, September 24., Lost 6-5. 

Middleside's first game of the year got off to a fine 
start when the Seconds retrieved their own kick-off, but 
the luck did not last and the School was edged 6-5 by Oshawa. 

Late in the first quarter Oshawa, in a series of short 
passes, romped over the goal line for an unconverted major 
by Olyink. By this time Oshawa was fighting hard for 
every yard, but eventually Trinity's drive took effect and 
the Seconds marched all the way to the Oshawa 15 yard 
line. This drive was broken up by a fumble on an end 
run and the ball fell into Oshawa hands. 

After half time, T.C.S. rallied and drove right to the 
Oshawa end zone for a major by Shier, but this went un- 
converted. At the three-quarter mark in the game Trinity 
had again backed Oshawa up to their 20 yard line, where 
they fumbled, and the watchful McKnight picked up the 
ball and ran to the fifteen yard mark. Here the Seconds 
tried for a field goal but it was unsuccessful and Oshawa 
slowly came back up the field, ending their march with a 
long kick for the winning point, two minutes before the 
end of the game. 

Throughout the game the Oshawa kicking was excel- 
lent while Marett, Bowen and McKnight stood out for 

T.C.S. vs. U.C.C. 
At U.C.C, September 28. Lost 11-5. 

The game got off to an exciting start as T.C.S. fumbled 
the kickoff and U.C.C. recovered for a touchdown which 
went converted. T.C.S. made small yardage around the 
ends, which was countered by U.C.C. 's pass attack, bringing 
them near enough for a rouge. T.C.S. failed to get out of 
their half, but put on a spectacular stand, holding U.C.C. 
back from the goal line by one yard. U.C.C. here recovered 


a fumble, and quickly drove over for another unconverted 
touchdown. T.C.S. now started a driving attack which was 
to be stopped by the half-time whistle. 

The last half saw both teams almost at a stalement, 
until two U.C.C. kicks were blocked, which spurred T.C.S. 
on to an unconverted touchdown by Shier. The final whistle 
blew with both teams still in mid-field and the score at 11-5 
for U.C.C. Shier and Budge played well in the backfield, 
and McKnight, Mockridge i and Binnie were in on almost 
every tackle. For U.C.C. Daratine, Segal and Rothwell 
provided our main opposition. 

At Port Hope. October 1. Won 28-0. 

On Saturday, October 1, Middleside played host to 
Malvern Collegiate from Toronto. The game started slowly 
as both teams failed to score in the first quarter. However, 
the Trinity team rallied and carried the ball down to the 
Malvern forty yard line, where Budge took the ball on an 
end run and scored a major. Shier converted to give the 
School a lead of six points. 

In the remaining half of the game Trinity proved to 
be much the superior team as they picked up four more 
touchdowns. In the third quarter Shier and Budge both 
scored touchdov/ns on line plunges, of which Shier convert- 
ed his own. Shier intercepted a pass and ran 45 yards for 
his second converted touchdown. The quarter ended with 
Trinity leading by a hardy twenty-three to nothing. During 
the last quarter the School added another unconverted touch- 
down on a reverse by Marett. The game ended with 
Malvern making a last minute drive which ended when time 
ran out. For Trinity, Budge, Shier, Thompson and Marett 
must be congratulated for their outstanding performances, 
while Douglas, the Malvern quarterback, was outstanding. 




At Port Hope, October 1. Won 22-1. 

In the first quarter the teams were evenly matched 
in a hard hitting exhibition of football. The only point was 
a rouge for Trinity in the early minutes of the game. 

T.C.S. gained the upper hand in the second quarter 
when Shamess scored, aided by a previous 25 yard gain by 
Day. Stephenson converted, ending the half 7-0. 

In the third quarter Appleby took possession of the 
ball and marched down the field only to have a pass inter- 
cepted by Trinity before they could score. Minutes before 
three-quarter time, Hyland scored a converted touchdown 
for T.C.S. to put them ahead 13-0. 

In the final quarter an outstanding punt by Appleby 
gave them their only point, rouging Stephenson in his own 
end zone. In the dying minutes of the game Smith scored 
for T.C.S. and Stephenson converted to end the game 22-1 
in favour of the School. 


On Saturday, September 24, the first tennis team was 
defeated by a much stronger Ridley four in nine straight 
matches. The Trinity squad of Seagram, Drummond, Budge 
and Turnbull came up with four victories in the day's play. 
Two of these were won by Drummond playing number two 
singles while Seagram and the doubles team each came up 
with one each. U.C.C. ended up second with five and S.A.C. 
went winless. 

The T.C.S. scores were as follows: 

Seagram def. Gray (S.A.C.) 8-6, 6-2. 

Drummond def. Herrera (S.A.C.) 6-1, 6-2. 

Seagram was def. by Cooms (B.R.C.) 6-0, 6-4.

We welcome the New Boys to the Junior School and 
hope that they enjoy and profit by their time at the School. 

Our good wishes for every success in the Senior School 
go with our Old Boys who are starting out there this year. 

We welcome Mrs. Burns to the Junior School and extend 
to Mr. and Mrs. Burns our sincere wishes for many years 
of happiness together. 

Our Saturday night movies have started once again 
and the first two shows have been very successful. 

The School picnic took place at the end of September 
and in spite of a rather threatenig day was a great success. 

The classrooms have been greatly improved by the 
addition of fluorescent hghting. 


High in the mountains of northern Peru, deep in the 
Andes lives a species of giant bird known as the Condor; 
a bird so big that the eagle is puny by comparison. 

Black with a white neck ruff, the Condor when full 
grown measures from four and one-half to five feet in 
length and as much as twelve feet in wingspan. Elarly writ- 
ers gave it even larger size. 

The Condor is mainly a carrion feeder and has developed 
special talents to help in food hunting. These are a keen eye- 
sight, a fine sense of smell, and great flying ability. The 
Condor, however, does not hesitate to attack cattle, sheep 
and dogs ,a thing fast bringing about its destruction by the 

Breeding slowly, the Condor is unable to fly until two 
years old, but if it does survive, it will live to a great age, 
as much as forty years. It is one of the most marvellous 
birds in the world.

A few months ago, a car pulled away from Nimiber 10 
Downing Street, London, carrying an old man of over eighty 
on a short but historic journey. Sir Winston Churchill was 
about to pay his last visit as Prime Minister of England to 
offer his resignation to Queen Elizabeth 11 at Buckingham 
Palace. Her Majesty had shortly before this, at a dinner at 
his official London residence, honoured him by proposing 
a toast to him herself. 

Sir Winston had served six monarchs faithfully, holding 
various offices under Queen Victoria, Edward VII, George V, 
Edward VHI, George VI, and our present Queen Elizabeth II. 
He had taken a prominent part in many historic occasions 
and by his wise counsel and inspiring courage had played 
a great part in England's history. 

In books we read of great men, but we shall always be 
proud to know we have lived in the era of such a great 
personage, and had the opportunity of hearing some of his 
famous speeches.

The white-capped waves rolled up on the beach and a 
stiff breeze came across the glistening lake in continual 
squalls. The sunbeams shone brightly upon the foaming 
waters. Canoes, sail boats and motor boats raced aimlessly 
to and fro across the lake, all enjoying the brisk breeze and 
blue waters. Over the waters, gulls scanned the blue for 
some tender fish. Loud voices of merriment could be heard 
from the beaches. Swimmers and boaters alike were en- 
joying the pleasures of this northland lake.

Though you may say football's a very great game, 
1 like it too, but all the same 
It's not the very easiest game; 

When on the line I'm awfully 'fraid 
That into a mess I might be made. 
When the opposing team all seem to pile 
On little me when all the while 
Our halfback's whizzing round the end 
Through a hole they simply cannot mend. 

On signals, I don't know what to do 

And you should hear the hullabaloo 

When the coach tries to tell me what to do: 

"On the sixty-six you block the end, 

On the forty-six you do the same 

And if you don't, you'll be to blame!" 

He goes on like this at quite a rate, 

And then he says, "You got this straight?" 

Now, some may say it's just my weight. 
But I don't care what our coach thinks, 
'Cause I'm turning out for Tiddley -Winks !

My ambition is to go through college and become a 
Doctor. As far back as I can remember, my uncles have 
been doctors. A doctor, as I think it, is a person who doesn't 
just work for money but to save lives and relieve people 
who are in pain. About a year ago, a man invented a cure 
for Polio. He didn't do it for money but did it to stop people 
from getting Polio. People every day are trying to invent 
cures for diseases and sicknesses. 

Now I think you understand why I want to become a 
Doctor and help save people's lives.

The leaves are red and golden, 
The sky is blue and clear; 
Our feathered friends are leaving 
With their song we loved so dear. 

The orchards and the meadows 
Are decked in red and gold; 
The fruit upon the scarlet trees 
Stands out so round and bold. 

The fields, their grain and pumpkins, 
And corn, and wheat they yield 
Now in the red-gold autumn. 
Harvesters, their sickles wield. 

What e'er the Good Lord gave us, 

Give thanks for ever more; 

Until the final harvest 

When He shall reap the final store. 

— M. H. H. Bedford-Jones, Form IIBl 


Soaring over the treetops in his majestic glide, many 
a bird and human have envied the eagle. 

They live on lofty crags, or at the top of dead firs. In 
a roughly built nest of small sticks they lay two white eggs 
and rear their family. 

The adult male has a golden-coloured beak which curves 
slowly from the base. The eagle has the same coloured 
talons measuring six to nine inches across. 

The Golden Eagle has a glossy brown coat and tail, 
with golden legs. The Bald-Headed Eagle has a white head, 
brown body with white at the tip of its tail and white ruffled 
legs. They range all through Europe, and North and South 


Strong of body and courage, and with a wing-spread 
of five to seven feet, no wonder the eagle is known as "The 
King of the Birds".

Co-Captains of Rugby : R. M. L. Towle, P. T. Wurtele. 

Once again the Rugby Squad is in the process of re- 
building! With only one half-colour left from last year's 
squad and very few who even played on the squad at all, 
we are indeed starting from the ground up. 

A number of boys are playing Rugby for the first time 
and in consequence we are lacking in experience. On the 
other hand, we can notice very marked improvement as the 
newcomers find their feet and learn more about the funda- 
mentals of this very complex game.

transferred to Spain. However, I can't complain about this 
assignment either. Spain is an extremely pleasant country, 
in fact the ideal country for a vacation, which is what most 
of my 18 months here have been. There is not very much 
news to be dug out of Spain and a newspaperman here is 
forced to adopt the leisurely Spanish work habits. 

"I have had many opportunities to travel in Spain and 
Portugal and there are any number of wonderful places to 
visit. With a few exceptions, these places have the advantage 
that when you arrive you have not been preceded by hordes 
of compatriots. If you should ever have the opportunity 
of a real holiday and a trip to this part of the world, please 
do not forget Spain and that I am here — and that goes for 
anybody from the School who might be passing through

ship extended for a third year. He took his B.A. in Juris- 
prudence last spring, narrowly missing a First. He is now 
reading for his B.C.L. During the summer he stayed with 
an Oxford friend in Spain and saw much of the country 
around Barcelona where his hosts had a summer home. He 
says his T.C.S. Spanish stood him in good stead and he 
scon found he was able to speak the language with some 
ease. Before returning he was able to visit a number of 
other famous places in Spain.

Charles Taylor ('46- '49) took a First Class in Philos- 
ophy, Politics and Economics at Oxford and has now joined 
the External Affairs Department. 


Jim Ross ('46-'49) is studying for his doctorate in

About twenty of the recordings made of last year's 
Christmas Carol Service are still left. They cost $3.00 
and may be obtained by writing the Old Boys' Office. 

A good supply of Old Boys' Crests is now on hand. 
They sell for $8.50 each. 

A shipment of the new Old Boys' Poplin Tie has 
arrived from Ireland. These are made by the famous 
firm of Atkinson's, Dublin and are much longer — about 
50" in length. They sell for $3.25. 

A new tie, the M. P. & S., described elsewhere, has 
become immediately popular. It has been accepted by 
the executive of the O.B.A. for wear and may be pur- 
chased from the Secretary at a cost of $3.25 each. 




ON SUNDAY, MAY 16, 1955. 

The Annnual General Meeting of the Association was 
held in the Library of the School on Sunday, May 16, 1955, 
during the Reunion weekend. The President, Brigadier I. H. 
Cumberland, was in the chair, and opened the meeting by 
presenting a concise report of Association activities during 
the past year. The Toronto Branch had been as active as 
usual, the Montreal Branch had renewed its activities with 
an expanded committee, the Vancouver and United Kingdom 
Branches had been busy with a July 1st reunion in prospect 
in London, England; steps had been taken to revive the 
Calgary and Edmonton Branches, and preparations made 
for Branches in Quebec and in the M^iritimes. 

The President reminded the meeting that dues had been 
increased largely to assist in the financing of the "Record" 
and to provide funds for the increasing activities of the 
Central Office. He outlined some of the difficulties encoun- 
tered in mailing an ever-increasing number of notices, 
fixture cards and "Records". Recent acquisition of an 
addressograph machine had done much to ease these diffi- 
culties. Mention was made of preparations for publication 
of a new Directory of Old Boys. 

The President thanked the Headmaster, the Secretary- 
Treasurer and others who had been of much assistance 
during the year. 

On motion of G. D. Wotherspoon, seconded by R. D. 
Mulholland, the Minutes of the last meeting were taken as 

The Secretary-Treasurer reported on the financial status 
of the Association, with particular reference to the Capital 
and General Accounts, the Bursary Fund, Fees, ties, crests 
and general office expense. 

On motion of J. W. Seagram, seconded by A. R. Win- 
nett, the financial report was adopted. 


The Secretary-Treasurer thanked the President for his 
donation of the addressograph machine which helped ma- 
terially in the mailing of more than 20,000 items during the 

Membership fees paid to date were below the previous 
year, but the increase in fees had resulted in more cash 
received. There were several new Life Membrships and 
annual fees were still being received daily. 

Disposition of the increased fees had been determined 
as follows : From each Five Dollar fee — $1.00 to be remitted 
to the Branch concerned (no change) $1.50 towards cost of 
publishing the "Record" (50c increase), $2.50 to the Central 
Office towards cost of additional secretarial help, re-opening 
of Branches and general increase in activities ($1.50 in- 
crease) . From Three Dollar memberships (first five years) , 
the Central Office is to receive 50c. 

The Secretary-Treasurer paid tribute to the untiring 
efforts of Mrs. Victor Spencer in the office. On motion of 
C. F. W. Burns, seconded by N. O. Seagram, a vote of thanks 
was recorded to Mrs. Spencer for her valuable work. 

On motion of C. F. W. Bums, seconded by G. R. Blaikie, 
the meeting unanimously approved the following changes 
to the Constitution of the Association: 

"Articles V and VI rewritten and combined — 

New Article V: Officers and Executive Committee.

(c) All Annual Membership fees shall be remitted directly 
to the Secretary-Treasurer of the Central Association, 
who will remit to the Secretary-Treasurer of each 
Branch Association such proportion of the annual mem- 
ber's fees as may be set by the Executive Committee; 
the balance shall be retained in the General Account 
and used for the operating expenses of the Association, 
or for other purposes as may be determined by the 
Executive Committe, e.g., the "Record". 

(d) The Secretary-Treasurer of each Branch Association 
shall keep account of the fees of both the annual and 
life members residing in their respective territories. 
Section 2 : Capital Account and Investments.

surance Companies Act, 1932, are authorized to invest their 

New Article XII: Crests and Ties. 

Boys of the Sixth Form are permitted to wear the Old 
Boys' Blazer and Crest. | Old Boys' Ties may only be worn 
after boys have left the School. 


The President paid tribute to the memory of Old Boys 
who died during the year. 

On motion by N. O. Seagram, seconded by J. W. Sea- 
gram, the following were elected officers of the Association 
for the ensuing year: 

Honorary President P. A. C. Ketchum 

President Brigadier I. H. Cumberland 

Vice-Presidents Brigadier John M. Cape 

A. R. (Bert) Winnett 
Secretary-Treasurer W. K. Molson 

On motion by A. R. Winnett, seconded by N. O. Sea- 
gram, P. A. DuMoulin was re-elected as a representative of 
the Association on the Governing Body for a further term 
of three years. Other representatives previously elected 
are J. M, Cape (two more years), and J. C. dePencier (one 
more year). 

On motion, duly seconded, Frank R. Stone was appoint- 
ed Honorary Auditor for the ensuing year. The Secretary- 
Treasurer was instructed to write a letter of congratulation 
to the Auditor on his appointment as Vice-President (Ad- 
ministration) of the University of Toronto. 

C. F. W. Burns gave a report on the Sustaining Fund 
which, as of May 14, 1955, showed pledges of nearly $165,000 
and nearly $115,000 cash received. He pointed out that this 
amount was contributed by only 294 donors, placing a burden 
of support on too few a number. With a broadening of the 
base of contribution in mind the firm of G. A. Blakeley and 
Co. had been hired to make a survey. 

The Headmaster read telegrams from Miss Bertha 
Symonds and Robert Burns. He then reported briefly on 
School activities, mentioned the need and plans for addi- 
tional secretarial help in the Old Boys' office, and expressed 
gratitude for a number of donations to the School, partic- 
ularly those in view in the Library — valuable pictures from 
the Strong family, shutters from the Ladies' Guild, and 
other library donations. He raised the question as to the 


suitable timing of the Old Boys' Reunion week-end; it was 
generally felt that the spring meeting was a good time from 
the point of view of ensuring good attendance by Old Boys. 
Finally, the Headmaster paid tribute to the tireless work 
undertaken by the President and others on behalf of the 

On motion of J. W. Seagram, the meeting then ad-

The spell lies limpid, light as nothing in this world 

White as nothing in this life, 

A thousand crystalline motes 

Like dust seen wheyi a ray of sun 

Beats through a darkened room. 

Christmas is quick for life is fast; 

But like a star, bright and steady 

In the dark sky, it shows the path. 

Devious and difficidt through the anti-climax 

Of its passing, when things resolved 

Remain undone, ivhen recent memories fade; 

The light enfeebled dimly glows 

As new life stirs. The slush turns green 

And gray turns yellow. The living spring 

Restores our path, all bathed in warmth. 

New hope now floods our pulsing veins; 

The needful gleam shows brilliant through the dust.

Some two centuries ago knowledge was hard to get 
and only the persistent and well off could acquire knowledge. 
Books were rare. Many, if not all learned persons, trained 
themselves to think logically and pioneered the unknown 
ground of many subjects. They learned and studied because 
they enjoyed finding out new things and were interested in 
getting ahead. Sometimes learning was not their sole 
occupation, but a hobby or a sideline from which they gained 
enjoyment and satisfaction. These men did not look upon 


a career or examinations as an end to study. They did 
not, after having passed an examination, go ahead and 
practice a career on the basis of what they had learned, 
but always continued to learn, to explore the unknown. 

In the 18th Century a man was rated an educated person 
if he knew something of the classics, had a fair idea of 
the geography of the world as it was known then, had 
travelled a bit (a difficult task in those days), could handle 
a sword, and was able to express himself in his native 
language. Today, anyone who wants to learn finds himself 
confronted with such a vast amount of knowledge that he 
needs a teacher to guide him through the maze. The dif- 
ficulty today is to digest the knowledge, all of which is 
readily accessible. Now, how many learn to digest, and how 
many are only memorizing or learning to juggle knowledge 
around to impress others? It is quite impossible to learn 
all that is knowTi, due to the vast number of things there 
are to learn. However, even that is minute compared to 
what we know is unknown. Since we cannot know every- 
thing, a new system of learning has developed, and we now 
have "specialists" for certain "fields" of knowledge. A 
specialist will become highly trained in one or perhaps 
several related fields. He will know all that there is to know 
in these fields at present, and try to discover more of what 
is as yet hidden from modern knowledge. He is learned, 
then, in only a small part of our activities, and may there- 
fore still be uneducated. 

To be educated, I think, we should have some idea of 
all the fundamental problems facing humanity, and also 
think about them, helping to seek a solution. So the man 
who in the 1700's knew less, but had a more balanced knowl- 
edge, was better educated for his time than is modem man. 
If one is to be a specialist in one field, he should devote 
most of his time to the pursuit of that aim. However, he 
must also be conscious of the world's other business and 
problems, and try to take part efiiciently in the duties he 
has as a citizen of his community. Many fail to do that, 


and see themselves on top of a slowly progressing world; 
they lack humility, they attempt to judge and make them- 
selves judges over things which they are not qualified to 
judge. Some come to regard their own field as the most 
important, and think that whatever someone else has to 
say on other topics can't be valuable. That is somewhat 
like the primitive man who laughs at the visiting foreigner 
because he can't speak his language, while every little native 
child can. This kind of specialist, who would call himself 
an intellectual without hesitation, discredits the real in- 
tellectual. He is incompetent to handle any situations out- 
side his field of learning and, if he assumes a responsible 
position, can hardly fail to make gross errors of judgment. 
It would be better to create a new name for the true 
intellectual. Perhaps it can be a title, not earned by exam- 
inations, but which can be bestowed only on a man who has 
proved himself to be a "humanist," an educated man with 
an urge to learn, to discover, and to think; one who has an 
acute awareness of the fact that the basic spiritual and 
organizational problems of mankind are still the same after 
so many thousand years of recorded history, and who has 
made a real contribution to the clarifying of those problems.

Because of the unusually large size of the August 
issue of "The Record," it was necessary to use a flat stitch 
for binding. So many favourable comments were made on 
its appearance that it has been decided to make this a 
permanent feature of the format. 



On October 9, Thanksgiving, Canon Lawrence gave the 
address in Chapel. He told us that during the summer he 
had had the good fortune to be looking through a medical 
text book. He was amazed to find that the millions of cells 
in our body are chemically like the protozoa, the first living 
organisms. These tiny cells existed in the ocean when the 
world was still young, to us a seemingly long time ago. 

On this day we are giving thanks to the God who made 
this cell and all the other wonderful things in the world. 
We are thanking him for the harvest, and to symbolize 
this, we place wheat and vegetables around the altar. How- 
ever, nowadays we are not so intimately connected with 
the soil as were our ancestors. We are more likely to be 


thankful for the business results of the year, for this is 
the time when stock is taken and accounts brought up to 

We have gone from one stage to another, from farming 
to business, protozoa to human, but one thing has remained 
constant throughout, God. For as it says on the altar cloth 
"Deus Est," "God is"; other things change but God remains 


It is a great pleasure and privilege to be back with you 
all and to join with you in the hearty singing by the whole 
body of the School of the old and well-known psalms and 

And tonight I want to speak about another old and 
well-known part of oui' church service, words which are 
so familiar to all of us that there is perhaps a danger of 
their full meaning and message being lost. 

My text is the closing prayer of every one of our daily 
evening services and it has already been said this evening. 
"The grace of Our Lord Jesus Christ and the love of Grod 
and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with us all ever- 

I can quite imagine that many of you, just as I did a 
few years ago when I was a boy at school, listen for this 
prayer rather than to it, in fact you hope for it for it is a 
sign that the service is very near the end and you will soon 
be out and getting about your usual evening fun or study, 
or perhaps down to the movie as fast as you can go. So I 
want you this evening to give a little more thought than 
usual to these words and to examine them under the three 
points contained in the prayer. 

The Grace of our Lord, Jesus Christ. What is grace? 
It is defined in the Oxford dictionary as attractiveness, 


charm and a refined manner. In the Greek mythology the 
three Graces were three goddesses who dispensed or bestow- 
ed beauty, charm and good will. In his second epistle to the 
Corinthians St Paul defined the Grace of Our Lord Jesus 
Christ in these words, "Though He was rich, yet for your 
sakes He became poor that ye through Him might be rich." 

Jesus knew that He was the Son of God and was one 
with God and yet he mingled with men of all classes and in 
all ■w'alks of life and whenever we read the gospels we are 
impressed with His gracious manner in His dealings with 
all whom he met and taught. He made no distinction be- 
tween those in high place and those of low estate. He was 
not above consorting with publicans, considered by those 
who thought themselves the best class, as beyond the pale 
if not actual sinners. As a guest at a wedding when the 
supply of wine ran short He used His divine power to save 
His host from embarrassment, in fact He went further so 
that the bridegroom was complimented for the quality of 
the wine which Jesus had caused to be provided. Then there 
was that vivid scene in the court of the temple, described by 
St. John, when the scribes and Pharisees brought before 
Him a woman whom they accused of actions which by their 
law were punishable by stoning and Jesus stooped down 
and with his finger wrote on the ground as though He had 
not heard their accusations, but, when pressed for judge- 
ment He lifted Himself up and said "Let him that is with- 
out sin cast the first stone." You know the rest of the 
story or if you do not, you can guess it. One by one they 
turned away until Jesus found himself alone with the woman 
and in his quiet way He said to her, "Woman, hath no man 
condemned thee? Neither do I condemn thee, go and sin 
no more." Is it surprising that He drew all classes of men 
and women to Him? THAT IS GRACE. 

The same meaning of the word is implied when we 
speak of our Gracious Queen or King as the case may be 
and we note this same grace or refined manner in many 
persons (not all of course) in high positions whose training 


for t±iOse positions has bred or forced in them a spirit of 
true humility which enables them to see the equality of all 
in the fellowship of God. Remember that gentleness and 
good manners do not always go with fine clothes, but good 
manners have a charm which never goes out of fashion 
and requires no capital outlay 

God gave to man graces three, 
The best of these is courtesy. 

Grace is an indefinable quality which is felt immediately 
you meet and converse with those who have it and it can 
be cultivated if we will try to seek the source of it. Much 
of it is to be found in the reading of good books from the 
classics of all ages, books in which is depicted graceful 
living as the order of the day rather than the rush from 
one form of entertainment to another interspersed by more 
mad rush to make a lot of money in a little time so that 
we may again run off for another long week-end of so- 
called pleasure. It is certainly not attained by listening to 
radio and television at the present time except on a few 
comparatively rare occasions. 

And that brings me to the second part of the prayer 
we are considering. The main source of grace or charm is 
the love of God. Like every good thing in this world the 
love of God is acquired by effort. We cannot just lie back 
in lazy contentment with the fact that because God loves 
us we are therefore living in a specially favoured, sheltered 
spot where we can spread charm and good will because we 
bear the name of Christian. The real Christian must first 
meet with God, learn from God, listen to Him both in this 
and other churches and in his private life through his con- 
science. The real Christian is known not by his name but 
by his words and deeds which show not only he is loved by 
God but that he in return loves God and is living by the 
pattern of God shewn by his Son while on earth. And it is 
this love of God which shows in the eyes and voice and 
manner of those persons who enjoy it. They are calm, self- 


possessed and carry a conviction of right, a sense of kind- 
liness, for God is speaking through them. 

It takes time and effort to attain the love of God and 
we may take the first step when we say with conviction 
"I believe in God the Father". We take the next several 
steps when we consciously accept and obey the dictates of 
the conscience rather than the will, and when we devote 
some part of om* time and a reasonable part of our means 
to promote good will and better living by ourselves and 
among others, not for our own glory but that others may 
see our good works and glorify our Father which is in 
heaven. In this connection it will occur to any thinking 
school-boy, and that means each of you in your own opinion, 
that there are many opportunities in any school day of pro- 
moting good will and better living, better language, better 
habits among those around you as your close companions. 

In taking these steps we arrive at the third and last 
of the three points of the prayer: — the fellowship of the 
Holy Spirit. Remember this: when you take steps you must 
arrive somewhere. K your steps are backward or down- 
ward, you go alone but if upward or forward you have God's 
helping hand. The collect for today, the nineteenth Simday 
after Trinity is another of the very short prayers very 
frequently used in this School. I will repeat it though is has 
been read three times already today, "O God forasmuch as 
without Thee we are not able to please Thee, mercifully 
grant that Thy Holy Spirit may in all things direct and rule 
our hearts." We may rest assiu-ed that the promise given 
by Jesus to his disciples that He would send His Holy Spirit 
to be with them at all times, still holds good for you and 
me, and when we ai*e trying in any way to do our duty, to 
do the right thing, to follow our consciences, we are never 
alone; we have the fellowship of the Holy Spirit who will 
help us along the most difficult and rough roads. 

It is therefore to be noted that in making the effort 
to attain to the Grace of our Lord Jesus Christ we have 
met GJod and learned to make some return for His love for 


U3 and to enjoy the companionship of the Holy Spirit which 
is really having a guiding principle with us in £ill our 

And so I will close and ask you to remember in future 
what a lot is contained in our closing evening prayer and 
it is my hope for all of you in this School and for those 
who will come here that "The grace of our Lord Jesus 
Christ and the love of God and the fellowship of the Holy 
Spirit may be with this School always." 


On October 23, the School was honoured by the presence 
of the Reverend C. W. Sowby, D.D., Principal of Upper 
Canada College, who was the guest speaker in ChapeL Dr. 
Sowby took for his text the stoi-y of the ministry of St 
Luke whom he classes as a verj' lovable and attractive 
character. In the Bible, Saint Paul mentioned in one of his 
letters' the great wisdom of Luke and his great perseverance 
in the c^use of Christianity during the persecution, when the 
Christians were suffering great torture under their enemies. 
Luke was always cheerful, and a loyal friend to all his fol- 
lowers. He was highly educated and had a broad outlook 
as well as a zest for helping people. Only Luke wrote about 
the birth of Christ and told the story of The Good Samaritan. 
His Gospel is looked upon as one of the best written books 
in the Bible, with a classic beauty of thought. Dr. Sowby 
pointed out that we should have pity on people who can- 
not notice beauty in the most ordinary and simple of things. 
We, in modem times, must help people in trouble, as is 
done in the Colombo Plan which gives aid to overpopulated 
and needy countries. The story of the Prodigal Son in which 
Giod shows how the sins of the boy are forgiven, and also 
the scene on the cross in which the robber's sins were for- 
given by Christ in his hour of suffering, are examples of 
Christ's forgiveness. We in turn must forgive misdoings 
by others, for every time we sin, we again crucify Christ. 


We must try to be friendly as Luke was. Luke hated sel- 
fishness and materialism which he shows in the story of the 
Rich Man and Lazarus. 

We also can see the stern side of Luke in his book in 
which he tells the exact conditions Christ desires and our 
need of self -discipline which He had on the Cross. 

Luke's is a Gospel of prayer, praise and power. It tells 
of the long hours spent by Christ in meditation and prayer. 
We too must say prayers and ask for God's help duiing 
life. It is He who gives us the Magnificat and Nunc Dimittis, 
two great hymns of praise. Finally, Luke's Gospel is one 
of power in which he says ordinary people have the power 
to do many things. Paul tells us that he could do anything 
with God's help. Luke's secret to good living was hard 
work and discipline, all of which leads to success. In closing, 
Dr. Sowby said that in the Service of God, as St. Luke found 
)ut, we can never fail. 


On Sunday, October 30, Mr. John Ligertwood ('43-'45), 
general treasurer of the Anglican Church in Canada, spoke 
at evening chapel. Mr. Ligertwood took as his theme Saul 
of Tarsus and his persecutions of the Christians. On one 
of his journeys a voice spoke to him, telling him to go to 
Damascus. There he lost his sight for three days. At the 
end of this time, the scales suddenly fell from his eyes and 
his sight was restored. From this time forward Saul gave 
his life to the service of Christ and the Church. 

Too often we think of people being struck by a blind- 
ing light as Saul was, and entering the ministry due to 
this miracle. Conversion to the ministry in most cases 
happens in an entirely different way. Very often it is a 
moving conviction that slowly resolves itself during the 
years. At a School such as T.C.S., we have the opportunity 
to build up a good religious foundation which we can carry 
into later life. The early religious training we receive at 


school may, over the years, develop into a conviction that 
could lead any one of us to the ministry. 

God is constantly calling us to be Christian men and 
women. Even if we do not enter into the ministry, we can 
help our church in various ways. Many men and women 
spare a few horns a week to help in Bible classes, church 
guilds, and other useful church functions. Mr. Ligeilwood 
said that often we may feel insignificant or even useless in 
life, but by taking an active interest in our church and its 
affairs, our life can become a fuller, better, and more use- 
ful one. 


The large window on the stairway to the Gallery of 
the Chapel has been recently replaced by a lovely coloured 
window depicting the Miraculous Draught of Fishes. It was 
designed and executed by Miss Yvonne Williams of Toronto, 
assisted by Miss Ella Simon. Both Miss Williams and Miss 
Simon have had experience with the world famous stained 
glass window firm of Connick of Boston, and Miss Williams' 
windows in Canada have won much attention and admira- 

The Window was originally given by Mrs. Greville 
Hampson in memory of her husband, E. G. Hampson ('94- 
'97) and after her death her wishes were carried out by 
her son, John Hampson ('34-'39) and daughter, Mrs. Ted 
Price, in memory of their parents, Mr. and Mrs. Greville 
Hampson. The Window will be dedicated in the spring. 

The School feels deeply privileged to be given the 
honour of having such a Memorial. 






Through the good offices of Brigadier Ian Cumberland 
the Dictaphone Company has installed one of its recording 
machines in the Headmaster's office at no cost. It will help 
very much in keeping the paper work in hand. 

« * * * * 

Mr. and Mrs. Wallace Duggan, Toronto, have given a 
beautiful table to the School. It is now in the Library where 
it has been much admired and is being put to good use. 

Mr. James Traviss and Mr. Philip Wisener have again 
given Squash Racquets to the School for the use of boys 
who are learning the game. 

Mr. Douglas McMiuray of Winnipeg has sent magazines 
to the School, and Mr. L. D. Smithers of the Dow Chemical 
Company has given a book to the Library. 


At the annual meeting of the Governing Body held on 
October 19, T. L. Taylor was elected a member of the Board. 
Tommy Taylor, as he is so widely known, was at the School 
from 1926 to 1932 and since then has been connected with 
Manufacturers Life Association where he is now one of the

for the Toronto Branch of the Old Boys' Association and he 
will be another and very capable representative of the Old 
Boys on the Governing Body. 


Mr. B. M. Osier resigned as Chairman of the Board 
at the annual meeting of the Governing Body on October 19. 
For nearly four years Mr. Osier has carried the business 
burden of the School and it is impossible to exaggerate how 
much he and his family have done for T.C.S. 

Mr. Argue Martin, Q.C., was elected to succeed him. 
Mr. Martin was at T.C.S. from 1914-17; he went on to Trinity 
College, Toronto and later Osgoode Hall. He has for many 
years been a partner in the firm of Martin & Martin, a very 
old established law firm in Hamilton, and he is now the 
senior member of the firm. Some thirty member-s of his 
family and close connections have been boys at T.C.S. 



On November 16, Air Vice Marshal G. E. Brookes, C.B., 
and Mrs. Brookes had lunch in Hall and the Air Vice Marshal 
presented the beautiful Air Force Association Trophy to the 

The Headmaster introduced Air Vice Mai-shal Brookes 
and spoke of his distinguished service in the Royal Flying 
Corps, Royal Air Force and R.C.A.F. The Head then gave 
a short outline of the School's Cadet Corps, beginning in 
1865 when the *'S.M." was a Battle of Waterloo veteran, 
Captain Goodwin. He spoke of the military tournament 
held in Toronto in 1926 when the Corps under G. S. Cart- 
wright won all the events in competition with Little Big 
Four Schools; the Strathcona Shield Awards, Imperial Chal- 
lenge Shield Shooting Awards, etc., and he mentioned the 


different uniforms the cadets had worn and the one being 
adopted this year. We became affiliated with the R.C.A.F. 
No. 400 Squadron in 1936, a new move for Cadets in any 
country, and in 1945 we became an Air Cadet Corps. 

The Air Vice Marshal said how impressed he had been 
with the enthusiasm of the Corps when he visited the School 
unexpectedly one day and on Inspection Day he saw a dis- 
play of drill and rifle exercises not often equalled by the 
regulars. The band he thought was excellent. He described 
the Trophy and mentioned that it had been won until this 
year by Corps in the West. 

In congratulating the School he mentioned particularly 
Squadron Leader Batt, F/L Armstrong, both seated at the 
Head Table, and all the Cadet officers. He then gave the 
Trophy to David Osier, last year's Cadet Squadron Leader. 
Osier made a happy little speech, paying tribute to the Cadets 
and his fellow officers. 

The Trophy, specially designed and representing the 
Spirit of Flight, is now resting on a special shelf at the 
head of the Hall, and looks most impressive. 


The Hon. Ralph Campney, Minister of National Defence, 
wrote a note of congratulations to the School on being 
awarded the Air Force Association Trophy, 

"It has come to my attention that the Royal Canadian 
Air Cadet Squadron at your School has been awarded the 
RC.A.F. Association Trophy, which is emblematic of the 
best squadron in Canada for the 1954-55 training year. 

"I would like to extend to you and to all the members 
of 398 R.C.A.C. Squadi'on my heartiest congratulations for 
this splendid achievement." 



On October 15, the School was privileged to hear a 
brief address by Group Captain Bader, D.S.O. and bar, 
D.F.C. and bar. 

Introducing Group Captain Bader, the Headmaster 
mentioned the School's contact in the past and present with 
the R.F.C., R.A.F., and R.C.A.F. 

Group Captain Bader's remarkable story told so well 
by Paul Brickhill in "Reach for the Sky" was mentioned 
also by Dr. Ketchum. He commented on how he, and so 
many of the boys in the School, had found this epic 

The Headmaster then went on briefly to give the School 
an outline of Mr. Bader's extraordinary life. Amongst other 
things, the boys were told that in his school days he was 
an exceptional athlete, won a Cadetship and entered his 
flying school fifth in his class, graduating with honours. 

Dr. Ketchum referred also to his "indomitable" spirit 
and courage after his crash and horrible accident at Wothell 
and how he set an example for the rest of his fellow pilots 
in the Battle of Britain by inspiring other flyers, helping 
them to save their "Island" from almost certain disaster. 

In Group Captain Bader's address he told the boys how 
difficult it was to speak after the Headmaster's introduction. 
He then went on to say how proud he was to receive a copy 
of "Reach for the Sky" autographed by so many of the 
boys who had read it. 

In a serious vein the Group Captain said that things 
done at School might be thought to be "a bind," that these 
same things were proper and would stand us in good stead 
in later life. He told us that "as much as we may like to 
think it, the easy way is not always the right way." 

In closing he told us that if we could look ourselves in 
the eye after doing something, it was all right. 

We are all grateful to Group Captain Bader for his 
visit and the privilege we have had in meeting him. 



The annual Hallowe'en party given by the Prefects for 
the New Boys proved a terrific success this year. The 
obstacle race in the gymnasium started off with a big bang 
when the first Bethune House contestant broke one of the 
beajns and the race had to be temporarily stopped. Amid 
cheers from the gallery the broken piece was quickly re- 
placed and the race restarted with even more excitement. 
It was a close match till Brent fell behind. However, they 
caught up to make it a close finish in which Bethune edged 
them out. The party then moved to the swimming pool for 
the apple bobbing contest. A few minutes after the whistle 
had been blown the two teams had cleaied the apple-laden 
pool. Then the apples in the baskets were counted. While 
the Prefects counted the score, some of the contestants 
decided to give the spectators a chance at bobbing too. The 
result of this was that several boys were thrown into the 
pool, clothes and all. Brent was announced victorious by 
a count of 111 to 99 and the night's score was tied. 

It took several of the Prefects to hold back the anxious 
new boys from the stairs while the others prepared the 
classrooms by putting hidden chocolate bars in every con- 
ceivable place. With the crowd released the place became 
a noisy tumult of scrutinizing boys. When everything had 
been overturned and searched the boys turned on the Pre- 
fects and frisked their pockets too. Much to their joy they 
found some hidden bars. 

Later in the dining hall, everyone satisfied his 
appetite with a delicious treat of cider, doughnuts, bims 
and fruit, thanks to a willing kitchen staff. 


On Thanksgiving week-end the School was invaded by 
a band of Old Boys. Some came on Saturday and the rest 
arrived on Sunday. The usual frivolities took place over 
the week-end and on Monday two games were played. 


A football game was played on the Bigside field and a 
soccer game was held on the Junior School fields. The Old 
Boys played om- Middleside football team which marched 
slowly onto the field and after quoting a few lines said by 
the ancient Roman Emperors to Gladiators in the arena, 
the game began. Within the fii-st five or ten plays the Old 
Boys scored a converted touchdown. Again the Old Boys 
scored an unconverted touchdown by J. Long. Cumberland 
caught a pass in another play and scored a converted T.D. 
for the Old Boys. This made the score 17-0 for the Old 
Boj^s when J. Long ran for another touchdown but the con- 
vert was missed so tlie final score for the Old Boys was 22. 
Middleside fought back gallantly but only in the last few 
minutes of the game did their coach, Mr. Lawson, drive 
through the line to get the School's only T.D. 

In the soccer game, in which the School played the 
Masters and Old Boys, the Old Boys also won. By half- 
time the score was 3-0 for the Old Boys with goals by Mr. 
Landry, ten Broek, and Sandy Scott. In the second half, 
the game slowed down considerably with the School scoring 
one goal through the work of D. Mitchell and then ten Broek 
scored again for the Old Boys. The final score was 4-1. 

Placing for the Masters and Old Boys were Mr. Mac- 
leod (coach), Mr. Scott, Mr. Landry, Mr. Brown, Mr. White, 
Mr. Frower, Mr. Gordon, Mr. Corbett and Mr. Dempster, 
Scott, Coleman, tenBroek, Willoughby, van der Zwaan, Hardy 
and Spencer. 


The boys sat spellbound as one coloured slide followed 
another across the screen. This was the occasion of Mr. 
Crawshaw's visit to the School on Saturday evening, Octo- 
ber 22. 

In a relatively short time we were whisked up the 
Alaska highway and through such famous places as White- 
horse and Dawson City. From here we made a sortie three 


hundi-ed miles inside the Arctic Circle v/here the monotonous 
blanket of snow was broken only by the irregular humps 
of the Eskimos' igloos. We were given an insight into the 
Eskimos' habits of living and his strange customs and 
traditions which still comprise their way of life. 

In startling contrast we now found ourselves in Africa. 
We toured through the small villages of thatched grass huts 
and through stretches of veldt. We saw the famed Victoria 
Falls from pictures taken right on the brink. What seemed 
to be the most impressive fact was that in some tribes the 
men do no work and are allowed as many wives as they wish. 

Throughout these slides we were impressed by the in- 
teresting subjects which were photographed, and some of 
the wild-life shots taken in Alaska seemed incredible. 

Now Mr. Crawshaw stood in front of us, and with a 
pass of his hand over his face, he became the "spittin' image 
of Uriah Heap." With sunken cheeks, twisted hands, and 
towseled hair, he drew cascades of laughter from the 

We were only sorry that Mr. Crawshaw could not stay 
longer and do more impersonations. 


This year a Chess Club has been formed in the School 
under the auspices of Mr. Brown, Mr. Corbett, Mr. Macleod 
and Canon Lawrence. Several chess boards are kept by 
Winton and are available to the members at any time. At 
the present time, a competition is under way, the pre- 
liminaries having been completed. When the finals are 
reached the first meeting will be held and an executive will 
be elected. There seems to be a lot of interest in this new 
club which should develop into an active organization dur- 
ing this year. 



One night last month, a well-known lesson was read 
in Chapel. Afterwards, the Headmaster and the Chaplain 
were wondering whether the full meaning of the lesson each 
night was grasped by all the boys. To help make the lessons 
clearer. Canon Lav/rence agreed to write a short introduc- 
tion to each one. These introductions would attract the 
attention of the boys and they would also explain difficult 
parts of the lessons. It was Vernon who successfully started 
this method of reading the lesson each night. 


On Monday, October 18, the School was privileged to 
have a visit from Major-General Smith, D.S.O., C.B.E. The 
Major-General, who is a graduate of R.M.C., is now Com- 
mandant of the National Defence Council in Kingston. He 
delivered a most interesting and informative address on the 
background and purpose of N.A.T.O. to a large group of 
boys and masters in the library. After having spoken on 
N.A.T.O., he gave excellent answers to the numerous ques- 
tions which were asked. Among the ideas expressed, it was 
pointed out that N.A.T.O. is not an aggressive clique but 
an alliance of necessity formed to provide defence for fifteen 
important western countries. This is not only a deterrent 
to Russian aggression but brings these countries into closer 
understanding and co-operation with each other. N.A.T.O. 
is at present protecting and preserving our way of life until 
the time comes when there is a clear indication that Russia 
wants peace. When this time comes and when we are con- 
vinced of her sincerity, it will be our duty to go every bit 
of the way with the Russians, to reduce our defence, thus 
releasing the tremendous capital tied up for that purpose 
and making it available for the improvement of our coun- 
try. Until that time we must wait for this concrete evidence 
under the protection of N.A.T.O. 's strength. Major-General 
Smith's excellent report is one well worth remembering.

Mercredi, le dix-neuf octobre, vingt-deux membres du 
Cercle Frangais allerent a Toronto pour assister a la 
representation du "Bourgeois Gentilhomme," jouee par la 
Comedie Frangaise qui est en tournee dans I'Amerique du 

C'est en 1680, peu apres la mort de Moliere, qu'une 
ordonnance de Louis XIV reunit les Comediens de I'Hotel 
de Bourgogne a la troupe de Moliere et a celle du Marais 
qui deja travaillaient ensemble. La Comedie Francaise 
etait fondee. Malgre toutes sortes de difficultes et de 
deplacements, elle a continue, pendant deux cent soixante- 
quinze ans, a conserver les grandes traditions du theatre. 
C'est done avec orgueil que les Frangais evoquent "La 
Maison de Moliere." 

Ce theatre presente ses pieces sur deux scenes a Paris: 
a la Salle Richelieu et a la Salle du Luxembourg. Dans la 
premiere on presente les classiques; dans la seconde, les 
modernes. Le repertoire de la Comedie Frangaise est im- 
mense, renouvele et augmente sans cesse. 

"Le Bourgeois Gentilhomme," c'est I'histoire de mon- 
sieur Jourdain, petit commergant qui s'est enrichi dans 
les affaires et qui veut vivre, maintenant, comme un homme 
bien ne. II prend des legons de musique, de dance, d'escrime, 
et de philosophie. II cultive la societe de la noblesse, mais 


il se rend completement ridicule. II ne permet pas que sa 
fille epouse le jeune homme qu'elle aime puis qu'il n'est 
pas gentilhomme. 

Plus tard, ce jeune homme reussit a duper monsieur 
Jourdain et, deguise en fils du Grand Turc, il parvient a se 
marier avec elle. 

Le role de monsieur Jourdain fut interprete de fagon 
geniale par monsieur Louis Seigner. La robuste servante 
Nicole, de Madame Bretty, nous fit rire aux larmes. Madame 
Jourdain, jouee par Madame Rouer, belle, toujours digne, 
quoique desabusee nous fut fort sympatique. Le reste de 
la troupe fit preuve de la perfection traditionelle de la 
Comedie Frangaise. 

Les membres du Circle Frangais ont fort apprecie la 
piece qu'ils ont trouvee facile a comprendre et remercient 
vivement monsieur Bishop de leur avoir fait entrevoir le 
genie de Moliere tout en passant une soiree si charmante 
et si frangaise. 


This year's rallies were conducted by two six formers, 
Bill Noble and Tony LeMoine and one fifth former Adam 
Saunders. The first rally was held on Friday night before 
the first Bigside game against Oshawa. The School on this 
occasion was let out early from their usual study hour and 
the rally took place in the assembly room. The members 
of the starting team were introduced and the School cheers 
were practised. 

The next rally was held on the Friday night preceding 
the Malvern game. This rally was held in the gym and all 
cheers were started from atop the piano. The rally merely 
consisted of cheers and singing as other events were saved 
for Little Big Four rallies. 

On the Friday night before the Little Big Four game 
with U.C.C. our largest rally was held. The School was 
warned to dress warmly. After a few preliminary cheers 


a conga-line was started around the gym and continued 
through the classroom block and around the squash courts, 
past the Lodge. The line wound its way down to the orchard 
where a bon-fire was prepared. After everyone had retrieved 
his clothing a circle was formed around the fire and more 
cheers burst forth. The fire was not too bright owing to 
wet wood but certainly the spirit was not dampened. 

The final rally was held the night before the S.A.C. 
game in the assembly room. Here, beside the cheering of 
the whole School, individual teams did separate skits. Most 
notable was the Middlesiders' rendition of "Be Prepared" 
which got a second chorus and the Whizzer White's team 
cheer and skit featuring Dowie and McCullagh. Mr. Dale's 
team gave us an EAMUS also. This rally ended the season 
as the School was not going to be present at the Ridley 

Every rally was most successful and showed the great 
amount of spirit the School had. Of course the usual amount 
of crazy clothing and head gear was to be seen but this all 
added to the fun. Thus, with a successful football season 
finished, we can look back and see that the team had the 
backing of the whole School, as evidenced by these rallies. 


Entertainment in the School, for the School, by the 
School, flows on, and yet surprisingly few people know its 
origin. The birthplace of most of this buffoonery is in the 
Entertainment Committee, consisting of six hot-chocolate 
swilling geniuses who congregate in Mr. Lawson's room, and 
heatedly discuss the ways and means to better entertain- 
ment far into the night. 

These six pillars of wisdom are Mac Campbell and Mike 
Burns from sixth form, Adam Saunders and Ian Binnie 
from fifth form, and George McCullagh and Mark Dowie 
from fourth form. 


Their latest accomplishment was a football rally in 
which every team in the School (excepting Littleside) dis- 
covered talent and produced a new song, skit, or yell on 
the theme of our Bigside football team. This proved to be 
fairly successful. 

Under such capable direction, School entertainment 
should be of high calibre in the months to come. 


This year the radio club, which up till now has been a 
relatively small organization, has been expanded in both 
its aims and membership and re-christened the "Elec- 
tronics" club. Formerly, the object of the radio club was 
to have its members study the basic essentials of "ham" 
radio and get their amateur licenses. Many boys showed 
a keen interest in this club but not necessarily in the field 
of "ham" radio. Thus, the idea of an electronics club arose 
which would cover a broader field and be a much more 
general and beneficial course. Those interested in tele- 
vision, high-fidelity or general electronics could have some- 
thing to work on individually rather than having to extract 
pieces of knowledge here and there in "ham" radio. 

The first meeting was held on November 9 under the 
direction of Mr. Landry and the following were elected: 
Adam Saunders, president, and Victor Fraenkel, treasurer. 

As the membership has increased by 500% we sincerely 
feel that this new club will prove its worth by giving more 
boys a sound understanding of electronics. 



Well, what kind of term has it been at Trinity? Here 
to bring you up to date on the events v/hich surround us, 
is your fellow social climber with "Around T.C.S in 30 

First, we bring you some flashes from behind the scenes. 
It seem.s that after looking at "Life," Dowie has decided to 
return to Martha's Vineyard. It has been overheard that 
"Worm" and "Tony" have become pen-pals. Rival distil- 
leries have been giving "Leo" some "Bonny" good competi- 
tions as the bootlegging business takes hold of T.C.S. , and 
the new boys pro\dde the press. Just handed to me is a 
report that "Jolly old Fritz's" comic section has been stren- 
uously rejected by the local census bureau. 

A short note about the weather — at last report 
"Wother" was under it. The farmer's barn, during the Big 
celebration caught fire. 

Now for the latest social splurges. — 

Our chief p-o-l-i-c-e-man. Shag, has been promoted to 
chief traffic director at Union Station. The "Top Hat" and 
the "Old Mill," wish to thank their T.C.S. patrons for 


their services beyond the call of duty. "Mr. Scott" has en- 
tered his prize cow in the Royal Winter Fair — O.K. 

Oh deah! Notions have it that the Branksome girls are 
going to fail because of these week-ends. 

"Bullet," "Bud," and "Sonny Jim" have gone collegiate, 
ordering Princeton bulls, bells and berries, while "Jerry's" 
new jacket gives him that Peter Prep look. The Rev. A. 
Pules put in a brief appearance for the girls, but due to 
a previous engagement at the King Eddy, his stay was short 
lived. After the wedding, Mr. Prower's room looked as if a 
mock battle had taken place; however, the "BOMB" failed. 
Congratulations are extended. 

Next we turn to "Sport Spotlights." Congratulations 
Bigside; you really showed us that fight. 6 "M" "Victorious, 
as the Itchs" place well in the annual cross country race, 
"Georges Jano" stole the show at the last variety night 
with a jump of .001. 'Bombside" was definitely unpre- 
pared for so many cheerleaders this season. Due to circum- 
stances beyond his control "Petu's" racing Old's finally ran 
out of gas after his tenth tour on the old ox road. 

Extra — Rumour has it that a bunch of the boys had 
great fun on the corner of Eglinton and Yonge. 

Well, before signing off may we remind them kids on 
bottom flat to cut their lights on time. If "Hose Nose" gets 
his schnoz in this too much, next time we will call this 
Kilroy's Kapers. 

Thus we sign off this edition of "around T.C.S. in 30 
seconds." Music maestro, please. — 




Through the catacombs of BETHUNE, amidst the 
DUN and CLANGor can be seen CITATION galloping in 
WESTern harness, nosed out by a certain Brentite. Speak- 
ing of the west TON is investing BOND— HO! HO!. Rusty 
sails by on the BLACK WITCHES' broom, while the pump- 
kin of de KID and HAMMY still glows from the flagpole. 

SUNNY JIM has recently been outslunk by Ken — 
maybe it's the gut jacket. By the way, DEHOOT still 
reportee to FERRIEee. Speaking of daHOOT ; OWL's signs 
seem to be cluttering the halls along with a few stills — 
while on subject of stills, we would like to point out that 
BLOCKHEAD'S seems to be the most successful; P.S. — 
the TOP HAT has seen the last of JERRY, and DAVE is 
getting bounced from the Shamrock club. Signalman DA VIES 
is busy sending morse code in Top Dorm. Also top dorm 
is operating a scandalous football pool. Speaking of foot- 
ball, WILL, BAAAWOOCE and NOBS are faithfuUy up- 
holding Queens. New romances are springing up — BEEBES 
is wondering whether the saying "age before beauty" is 
valid. A Brentite has recently struck out at CLUB 47 but 
never fear a noble Bethunite, CHICO is now at bat. 


The sombre red brick walls, known as Brent, harbour 
in its many little cells, eccentric and unmentionable people 
indeed. Upstairs, where the air is fresher, HIGGINS still 
broods over his unfulfilled ambition which surges, like the 
sea, through his mind. 


Cider is still produced in the middle dorm though the 
apples have gone sour while SCOTT'S brand is knocking 
over the inebriated members of the four manner, not to men- 
tion LEO'S locker. In the far distance sound the discordant 
notes of KETCHUM'S viohn in the shades of the bathroom; 
if interrupted he threatens to pull the plug. It was noted 
with interest that when DOWIE asked her for a photo it 
cost him the price of a Life magazine. WHITHEAD spends 
his time writing to SackVILLE whoever she may be. 

BLAINE'S car reposes where he left her when she 
gave out. Next door STAN'S woman beams a sickly smile 
across the skin covered walls of 206. A little further down 
the cold, echoing passage DAVE and BILL say they are 
glad to be rid of their casts. Casualty reared its wicked 
head twice in 202 for unknown reasons. In A. D. Corbett's 
fuse box things have gone wrong. The live wires of middle 
flat seem to have been overloaded too much lately, even 
for their iron constitutions. BUT SIR! ICHARD'S sheets 
have never been recovered from "Let's go T.C.S." So much 
for middle flat shinanigans. 

Down on bottom skid row some of the lads seem to 
have skidded rather too late at night. Their lights were 
on late when they were interrupted by an explosive voice. 
They had to iron out that woman trouble before mid term 
break. Now they dream in darkness, eh HOARY? 

FAROUK'S famous leap through the air after a tackle 
has become proverbial. A large NOSE has been lost. Please 
return to the bereft owner who can't smell out trouble 
without it. Wonder what BILL (SPUN'S spy) and BERT 
did after the Queens game? CHAUSS is still furthering 
English-French relationships. 

SHARPY is in on a muscle building campaign. Dashing 
WILLY has been pulling some real STALLS in Toronto 
while HERMAN just grins. 

Flash! WALLY'S phone call cost five bucks. She must 
be really something. 


Now the exams are approaching and Brent house is 
going to hit the books, says RIGHT-NOW (not the new 
one) . He put up a pleasant notice about our last month's 
marks and now we're going to have to act like the inmates 
of cells, namely, busy bees around the honey. Then we'll 
really have to buzz around the honey in the holidays. 


"All aboard," rings through the Trinity Choo Choo, as 
the conductor, a one-time Toronto traffic cop, waves the 
train on with his red glowing lamp. "I'm runin' this show," 
comes from a voice up front. "All right, engineer," replies 
the conductor". 

Lately the train has been moving faster. The engineer 
seems to get more coal into that burner, thanks to the new 
assistant. The engine itself is much cleaner and the bell 
rings with a more definite clang. 

The conductor some how got a bicycle on the train and 
has no trouble riding it. But he does have trouble enter- 
ing the New Boys Car when a greasy door knob slows him 
down. Once inside, the noise ceases except for Smiles Winton 
who doesn't know where Stan is. In the corner a telegram 
is addressed to Dave Dunlap on the Bethune caboose. It 
reads: "How come our generosity of the bottle wasn't re- 
ceived with open lips?" It is signed: top bunk Trinity. 

Pushing on to the next car finds Steinmetz dreaming 
of those beaches in Sweden, with their come closer look. It 
just seems to grow on him. Robinson's bed has a large 
sag in it but he claims it came from the engineer's room. 
Chris and George are also on this car but they want a good 
night's sleep. 

In the next car the bicycle stops and there we find 
redcap Hall lying down facing "West" humming, "It's been 
a long long time." Hobbyist John and Bob are in this car 
too but they have finished their evening snack and are nearly 
asleep. Farther down the line there is a little commotion 



and so the conductor wanders down. It's one of the travellers 
in Rhino's room. He lost his ticket so he is kicked off the 
train, singing, "Have faith, hope, and charity ..." 

Back in the caboose a "wee man" from the highlands 
is adjusting his plaid night cap before he turns in. 

At seven in the morning Gene "Krupa" McCullagh goes 
wild at the sound of a blaring record player. The bug is 
caught by John "Buddy" Little while in the middle the red 
cap has a crazy beat of his own as he flips the disc. 

Charlestoning in the shower brings Jess with the mop 
while the brakeman in the caboose insists on dressing gowns. 

The train finally returns to T.C.S. but none of the new 
boys is ready since Perkins has a monopoly on the only 
mirror and he insists on combing his hair. This means Sea- 
born won't be able to wash "properly."

There was only one door to the Library and this was 
through the Crimson Drawing Room. It ended the vista 
of doors which stretched the complete length of the house. 
Even the key holes through the great Spanish mahogany 
double doors were in line. One could see a chink of light 
if one put one's eye to it, from the library key hole down 
to the Chinese state bedroom, at the other end, ten state 


rooms away — an apartment disused, its bizarre oriental 
splendours shrouded in dust sheets, like many other parts 
of the vast house. 

The door shut behind with a click. It was almost un- 
noticeable that the library side was faced with false books. 
Then they surrounded you. Every wall except the south, 
which was pierced with four great shuttered sash windows, 
was lined with them. They sat complacently, a medley of 
brown and gold, in their bepedimented book cases, lines 
and lines, battalions of books, big tomes and little. The 
only relief was where the marble Adam chinmey-piece 
stood, over which hung a delightful warm-coloured Guardi 
portraying a composition of Roman ruins. The lower 
shelves were the largest. They held huge leather bound 
Atlases, a whole set of Piranesi and various architectual 
works like Wood's "Ruins of Palmyra." The dust lay thick 
on top and the dry smell of it and the softer scent of book 
polish intermingled into a perfect "Eau de Bibliophile." 
Above rose the smaller shelves, filled with the usual country 
house selection: Sermons, Ackerman's Repository of Arts, 
the Grentleman's magazine, the Annual Register and Lady 
Augusta's novels or the "black sheep" Gustavus' poems, in 
the style of Byron. Each spine was stamped with the Boar 
and Wyvem, the two crests of the house. Inside, a pompous 
multi-quartered book plate of Victorian times was pasted. 
In earlier editions a Chinese Chippendale plate took its place. 
There were no new books in that room; the latest seemed 
to be Queen Victoria's collected letters, published post- 
humously in 1905. The library was uncatalogued and no one 
knew what might be found in its shelves, except that tire- 
some literary friend of Rachel's, whose brother was coming 
down that day to look into them. The family never used 
the library as it gave the servants so much extra work, now 
that it was so difficult to get them. The west wing was much 
too far away. Besides, the yellow sitting-room was much 
warmer and more comfortable than the mausoleum-like state 
rooms at that end of the house. 


The blinds were drawn down over the shutters, but the 
candle light mellowed the room pleasantly. It would have 
been a pity to open them; anyway you could see the view 
from next door. The urned vista leading to the Temple of 
Concord and Victory had looked cold and unappetizing on 
the March day. The steady flow of rain on the terrace was 
gurgling in the gutter outside. 

An hour or so ticked by, and the hands of the Boule 
clock in its niche had moved from two to four o'clock. It 
was a riveting occupation looking into the shelves. Already 
a first edition of Byron's "Childe Harold" in four cantos 
had turned up. The first had a signed letter from Byron to 
Gustavus in it. One good thing to be said for the wicked 
younger son anyway. For the family seemed strangely 
silent when his name had been brought up. But Gustavus 
and certainly Byron were out of fashion now of course. 

It was really time to go, so few trains up to London, 
but where was the door? How odd. Not a gap for one any- 
where. At the same time the candle flickered and went out. 
The darkness surged round like a blanket. No light showed 
through the shutters. How stiff they were — quite unopen- 
able. The bar which kept them shut was invisible in the 
dark. No matches, for he didn't smoke; no light and seem- 
ingly no way out. Panic moved in stealthily, then with leaps 
and bounds. 

That evening he was found dead in the Library in total 
darkness. The doctor said from heart failure. No one heard 
his screams up at that end of the house; he wasn't missed 
at luncheon as there were twelve anyway. If he had been 
there, there would have been thirteen. The lack of the 
number seemed to have proved unlucky that day. No one 
heard him except the books, whose soundproof leather and 
paper kept them and him in. 

"He was rather odd though," said her ladyship the next 
morning from behind the Paul Storr silver tea urn. 

"He seemed so interested in that dreadful man Gustavus, 
who died in the library so oddly, after that seance, in which 


he tried to get Byron to come back. I found Byron's "Childe 
Harold" scattered all round the room when I saw Crook- 
shank dead. By the way, the first canto was found in his 
pocket with a letter inside. Such a social climber, probably 
a thief also. Rachel, dear, please don't ask anymore of your 
queer friends here."

Where the foothills of the Laurentians give way to the 

path of the sea, 
there lies a magnificent country, the peer of any that be. 
Though you, go the length and breadth of this earth, travel 

where'er you may, 
you will find no place so exceedingly fair, that with it can 

compare — 
the awesome beauty of that land which surrounds the 

Riviere Beaupre. 

'Tis the sojourn of the debonair, 'tis the homestead of the 

'tis the region of rolling forestland, of balsam and of pine, 
of spruce, birch and maple, of cherry and mountain ash, 
though even when the snow lies deep, its unadorned elegance 

this land will keep 
for it is a land whose beauty reigns supreme, whose sym- 
metry does not clash. 

There, winter is the season of loneliness, hardship, frugality 

and strife. 
'Tis when the awesome powers of the elements, which lay 

waiting, spring to life 
and play havoc with the punyness of man. Oh, cannot you 

the blizzards that cut to your very bones, the snow that 

swirls 'round the tempest that moans, 
yet the terrible beauty of winter is here, as Nature's forces 

sweep across the skies. 



Then, new life, Spring, grips the woods, and Nature be- 
comes the Great Sower, 
the woodlands regain their vivacity and they are cruel no 

Spring blends into summer, enchantment is the theme, 
the air is clear, the flies intense, the forest radiates splendor, 

the trees have grown dense. 
Sounds of wildlife filter through the woods, and happiness 

is supreme. 
The autumn arrives in a gaudy display of ostentation, 
with the leaves coloured in all hues, the result? Perfection! 
The mountain cataracts spume forth their water blue, and 

crystal clear, 
into the thundering gorges, the low, fertile valleys. Sure, 

'tis a fitting fmale 
in the unquestioned masterpiece of the Great Creator, at 

the end of another year.

It was to be an unforgettable adventure not at all 
anticipated. I had waited in Hamburg now three days for 
my trans-atlantic flight to New York. I boarded the huge 
plane happy at being able to return home again after a 
thoroughly enjoyable summer, but not knowing what was 
to befall us soon. 

We were to take the northern route, which would go 
over as much land as possible. The flight to Copenhagen 
was enjoyable, and the pleasantness of the airport there 
added to the feeling of satisfaction. Shortly after leaving 
Denmark, the sky got darker and darker. A heavy rain and 
a cold wind lashed about the plane. We were approaching 
Reykjavick, the capital city of Iceland, when we were told 
that the plane would not be able to land for refueling due 
to the bad weather there, but that an attempt would be 
made to land on a small airstrip in the sparsely populated 


region of northern Iceland. That gave us an hour and a 
half in which our nerves were getting edgy. At times my 
imagination ran away with me, and speculated on the pos- 
sibilities of a forced landing in this cold and desolate region, 
or even a crash. At that, I considered the chances of sur- 
vival and arranged the things about me so as to afford me 
a strong support. I was prepared for the worst, wondering 
at the adventure of surviving a crash, but the idea that I 
might not do so never entered my mind. 

As we approached the small airfield, the nervousness 
and fear of the passengers could be sensed in the air. It 
had grown dark now very fast as we got further up north, 
and nothing could be seen below but the shadows of the 
hungry mountains which seemed to reach up for us. Sud- 
denly small lights jumped out of the cold darkness below, 
and a small, a very small airfield was dimly visible. As the 
plane descended, the smallness of the landing area became 
more apparent and the possibility of our huge aircraft land- 
ing there seemed to disappear. Nevertheless the pilot did 
attempt it, and the nose of the plane came to a hesitating 
stop a few feet from a cluster of houses at one end of the 
runway. I was rejoicing at our safe landing when I realized 
that we had to get back up again. 

As I left the plane, I stepped into a determined and 
bitterly cold wind which nearly blew me over. I noticed 
that the short runway on which we had landed was covered 
with steel plates. It was a former World War II emergency 
landing strip. Some of us rode off in an open jeep through 
which the wind whistled with a jeering note, to a little settle- 
ment not far away. After some hours, word came over the 
radio that the weather had cleared up at Reykjavick, and 
we could now take off again. The take-off was just as close 
as the landing had been, and I saw the shadows of the moun- 
tains sink away a few feet below the plane. 

The landing and take-off at Reykjavick was imevent- 
ful, but bad weather overtook us again as we neared New 
York. As dawn came the sky grew dark, rain and hail

attacked the plane; the wind shook the aircraft without 
mercy, and the wings threatened to break off like twigs 
on a tree. The heavens crashed with lightning and roared 
loudly with warning thunders on all sides, above and below. 
The plane seemed like a fragile little toy amongst all this 
vast reckless power threatening to smash us to the ground 
like an intruder in a foreign region. I sat glued to my seat, 
incredulous at this display of endless power and strength 
against which we were helpless. 

When we finally pierced the other end of the danger it 
seemed unnatural to see New York gleaming proudly in the 
sunshine. I stepped back onto earth after landing with a 
profound humility and new realization of the complete in- 
significance of man in the vast, powerful expanses of Crea-

I threaded my way through the crowds until I came 
to a dimly lit street. I walked continuously along it, my 
eyes piercing the shadows of the darkened doorway which 
made weird shapes beside me. Suddenly, seemingly out of 
nowhere, it appeared before me. The address was the right 
one and the sign on the door confirmed my suspicions. This 
was the house. The door squeaked as I opened it and the 
stairs creaked ominously as I mounted them. At the top 
I hesitated. "Do I want to go through with it? Is it worth 
it? If it weren't for her ..." I pushed open the door and 
went in. 

I found myself in a dingy little room with a shabby 
divan along one wall and two matching chairs on another. 
Against the third wall was a table covered with brown 
mysterious-looking envelopes. In a moment the curtains 
parted and a little old man with big bushy eyebrows and 
a crooked nose appeared. What little hair he had was grey 
and his face was old and wrinkled. His eyes had a shrewd. 


piercing look as he studied me carefully. Then he spoke. 
His voice was cracked and harsh. "Follow me," he cackled. 
It was too late to turn back so I followed him. He led me 
into a room in the centre of which was an elevated chair 
which seemed to be the centre of an array of powerful 
lighting. He offered me this seat and cackled again. For 
a minute or so he disappeared and I heard him rustling 
about behind the curtain. Then he finally reappeared with 
a box on legs which he aimed carefully at me. His cackle 
startled me at first. "Now I'll shoot your head first. Smile,

"How amazing that this should be revived," Doctor 
Watson thought as he moved slowly along with the lineup. 
Directly before him he noticed a large poster similar to the 
one that had prompted him to attend the evening perfor- 
mance. In large black type were the words "The Great 
Fernando" and directly beneath, "World Famous Hypnotist." 
The doctor just couldn't resist the temptation to see the 
production, and he pushed his way into the packed audi- 

As he sat waiting for the curtain to go up, his thoughts 
were intent upon his knowledge in the field of hypnotism 
or mesmerism, as he now recollected was its first name. 
He began to ruminate upon everything he had learned about 
the psychological phenomena. "In untrained hands its ef- 
fects are hazardous." The words of a prominent doctor 
flashed across his thoughts like lightning charging the 
ominous dark of night. These words remained sharply 
etched in his brain. It was only two summers ago, he remem- 
bered, that he had taken that course on hypnosis. All that 
he had learned now came vividly to his mind. 

This train of thought was suddenly broken as the 
audience began to acknowledge the appearance of Fernando. 


After an attempt at a humorous introduction, a volunteer 
was called for. 

A man and an attractive young woman stepped forth 
instantaneously. The performer readily accepted the man 
as his victim, but the crowd, attracted by the young girl, 
was most insistent that the latter should be the victim. 
Fernando seemed somewhat taken aback and rather loath 
to use the female volunteer but he had no choice. 

The hypnotic genius began his work by making what 
seemed to the doctor somewhat nervous, hypnotic passes. 
Sleep came at length. The pretty idol of the crowd was 
aroused. She was ordered in a stuttering voice to pick up 
the chair on which she sat. The command was obeyed with- 
out the least hesitation. Suddenly the doctor arose to his 
feet. Something had happened. 

The manager of the establishment rushed onto the 
stage. That old familiar cry, "Is there a doctor in the house?" 
could be heard above the noise of the excited crowd. Dr. 
Watson pushed his way to the front. There on the stage 
lay the great Fernando. The hypnotist soon came around 
and saw the doctor kneeling by his side. 

By now the audience had settled themselves once again 
realizing that the cause of excitement was only a fainting. 
"What on earth could have caused you to faint?" the doctor 

One is inclined to believe that Fernando 's response was 
blurted out unwittingly because of his shocked state. He 
spoke into the ear of the doctor. "My accomplice, they 
wouldn't let him be my victim and yet," here his eyes began 
to widen, "and yet I hypnotized the girl." 

The performer went on without further mishap. The 
young girl obediently followed all her master's instructions.

Hamilton is a large industrial city situated at the 
head of Lake Ontario between the Niagara Escarpment 
and Hamilton Bay. As you approach the city from the 
north via Clappisons Cut, below you is a city stretching 
away to the south-east as far as you can see. Rising 
abruptly behind Hamilton is the Niagara Escarpment form- 
ing a massive backdrop to the vast expanse of the city. 
To your extreme left you will see Stelco, Canada's largest 
steel plant, built on a man-made isthmus jutting into Ham- 
ilton's well-protected harbour. Adjoining Stelco is Defarco, 
another all-Canadian steel company, which as in Stelco, 
every year produces a large output of both finished and un- 
finished metal products. Beside Stelco is the International 
Harvester Company and Studebaker-Packard's, Studebaker 
division assembly plant. Hamilton also houses many other 
industries including the Life Saver plant, National Steel 
Car, Proctor and Gamble, Westinghouse and various textile 
companies. Hamilton has also a fine harbour which enables 
industries to be located in the city. The harbour is sepa- 
rated from the lake by a natural causeway which is bisected 
by a large canal, allowing even the largest of lake freighters 
into the port. As you glance to your right you will observe 
the harbour and industrial areas giving place to the resi- 
dential district, stretching towards Dundas at the western 
end of the city. Hamilton is now definitely on the road to 
expansion with the St. Lawrence seaway playing a great 
part in its march of progress. In the near future I should 
not be surprised to see Hamilton surpassed in size and 
wealth only by Montreal.

The football season of 1955 will be remembered by all 
who saw any of the games as one of the best in years. As 
usual the game with Upper Canada was a struggle and 
it ended in a 22-22 tie. Both teams went on to win their 
remaining games and therefore became co-champions. 

All of the boys on first team played well in all of the 
games and there were no stars. This, in fact, was the reason 
for their success. The team always played as a team and 
not as twelve individuals. Throughout the season the School 
spirit was never lacking, in fact it was tremendous. When 
the team was behind, the cheers came faster and louder, 
something which is not often seen. 

Owing to the exceptionally high calibre of football 
played, there were eight Distinction Caps awarded. They 
went to captain Mac Campbell, Mike Burns, Bob Ferrie, 
Tony Nanton, Stewart Caryer, Dave Outerbridge, Ed Long, 
and Bill Jenkins. Our heartiest congratulations to all of 

Every year the team is well supported by parents and 
Old Boys, but this year their support was even more notice- 
able. Thanks to Mr. H. Hall, coloured movies were taken by 
professional photographers of all the Little Big Four games. 


On behalf of the team and the School we should like to 
thank Mr. Hall for this wonderful present. Not only will 
we get a great thrill out of seeing the games over again 
this year, but also of seeing them when we return as Old 

Congratulations should go also to Middleside and Little- 
side who had wonderful seasons, the latter going unde- 
feated. Whether an undefeated season is a good thing for 
a group of young boys or not is a debatable point because 
it is generally thought you learn more in losing than in 
winning, but at any rate the boys played well and deserved 
it. Our thanks should go to all the coaches of all the teams 
in the School. Mr. Hodgetts has succeeded again, Mr. Law- 
son has got off to a good start and of course Mr. Landry 
has coached another undefeated season. To all the league 
coaches who did so much to create a real football spirit in 
the School we also say "Thank You."

At Port Hope, October 14. Won 17-6 

With a week remaining before the start of the Little 
Big Four campaign, T.C.S. took the field in its last exhibi- 
tion game against a strong team from North Toronto. 
Trinity started fast, taking the ball on the opening kick-off 
into scoring position. After a succession of line plays with 
Dunbar and Campbell carrying, Dunbar smashed over right 
end for a major score. Winnett booted the extra point. 
Early in the second quarter Jenkins ran a reverse deep into 
North Toronto territory. On the next play Hyland, playing 
for the first time in a month, skirted the end for a touch- 
down which Winnett converted. Late in the half Burns 
intercepted a North Toronto pass and carried to the 10 
yard line. Two plays later Campbell carried for a touch- 
down. The convert attempt was not good. North Toronto 
came to life in the last moments of the half with a series 
of end sweeps and passes which paid off when MacDonald 


scored and converted. The score at the half was 17-6 in 
favour of Trinity. 

The second half was slowed down considerably due to 
the bad weather. Neither team could make any headway 
in the heavy going. There was no scoring in the second 
half and the game ended 17-6 for T.C.S. MacDonald stood 
out for North Toronto while Campbell, Dunbar and Jenkins 
played well for the School. 


At Port Hope, October 22. Tied 22-22. 

Keeping up the old tradition of a close game, T.C.S. 
and U.C.C. battled to a 22-22 tie in the opening Little Big 
Four game. The contest was played in near-perfect autumn 
football weather and was watched by one of the largest 
crowds in years. The field was complete with a professional 
movie photographer and a Public Address system. The game 
itself, as was the setting, was one of the best in years cli- 
maxed by a terrific up-hill battle by Upper Canada. 

From the kick-off, U.C.C. began to drive but after two 
consecutive first downs, they fumbled and T.C.S. recovered. 
The ball then exchanged hands a few times in U.C.C. terri- 
tory, until T.C.S. recovered another U.C.C. fumble deep 
in U.C.C. territory. Hyland then took a pitch out from 
Bums, and taking advantage of a key block by Caryer skirt- 
ed the end for a 12 yard touchdown. Winnett's convert 
attempt was low making the score 5-0 in favour of T.C.S. 
U.C.C. was unable to move the downsticks because of good 
tackling by Nanton and Outerbridge. T.C.S., taking advan- 
tage of a U.C.C. penalty giving them a first down, scored 
again on a 20 yard pass play from Campbell to Hall. Win- 
nett's convert was good, making the score 11-0. In the 
dying minutes of the first quarter a 50 yard pass play 
from Campbell to Hall gave T.C.S. possession in U.C.C.'s 

T.C.S. was unable to capitalize on this 50 yard advance 
and the ball changed hands back and forth with U.C.C.'s 


Conacher and Johnson doing most of the running. Dunbar 
and Hall, with some good running blocks being thrown by 
Dunlap, advanced the ball to the U.C.C. 10 yard line. Jen- 
kins then pulled down a pass from Campbell making the 
score 16-0. Winnett's convert was good — 17-0. 

U.C.C. then seemed to catch fire and marched up the 
field on passes thrown by quarterback McMurtry to end 
Twible but time ran out and the first half ended with 
T.C.S. having a 17 point margin. 

U.C.C. kicked off to start the second half. U.C.C. soon 
took over the ball. Looking like a new team they rolled 
down the field on runs by Hoedi and Conacher, finally capi- 
talizing on an end run by Karrys. Karrys' convert was good 
making the score 17-6. T.C.S. then moved down field on 
passes until Eby intercepted a T.C.S. pass. U.C.C. started 
another drive and after picking up two first downs and a 
T.C.S. holding penalty, Conacher scored on an end run. 
Karrys' convert was blocked making the score T.C.S. — 17, 
U.C.C. — 11. T.C.S. then caught fire and advanced to the 
U.C.C. 20 yard line on two passes to Long, one covering 

45 yards. 

From the U.C.C. 20. Dunbar and Campbell moved the 
ball until Dunbar scored from the 3 yard line. Winnett's 
convert was blocked — 22-11. Conacher ran the kick-off back 
to the 54 yard line and two passes to Twible moved the 
ball deep into T.C.S. territory where Johnson carried it 
over for a touchdown. Karrys' convert was blocked by T.C.S. 
22-16. The T.C.S. line began to weaken under the continual 
battering from the strong U.C.C. line and seemed to tire 
greatly in the middle of the final quarter. A Campbell kick 
was blocked by McWhinney and Campbell was forced to 
kick again 25 yards back. Then U.C.C. put on a final spurt 
and Conacher, after two first downs, went around right 
end for a long end run to the T.C.S. 2 yard line. From 
there Karrys carried over for a touchdown and his convert 
was good making the score 22-22. For the remaining three 
minutes neither team scored and the gun finally sounded 
to end a well-fought game. 


For T.C.S. Campbell and Hyland in the backfield, Ferrie, 
Outerbridge and Nanton on the line, played well, while 
Conacher, Karrys and Twible stood out for U.C.C. 

mGSIDE vs. SJI.C. 
At Aurora, October 29, Won 15-«. 

After a rainy morning, the sun broke through, prom- 
ising excellent football weather as Trinity took the field 
against St. Andrew's in the School's second Little Big Four 
encounter of the season. 

Hyland took the opening kick-off and carried to the 
40 yard line. On the second play S.A.C. intercepted a Trinity 
pass and carried into Trinity territory but the Saints were 
unable to capitalize and had to kick on the third down. 
Trinity took over in their own end but two ground plays 
fell short of a first down and Campbell's third down kick 
was partially blocked giving St. Andrew's possession on the 
Trinity 40 yard line. Two ground plays put the Red and 
White in position for a field goal attempt but Muirhead's 
drop-kick was not good. As the first quarter drew to a 
close Muirhead opened the scoring by kicking 60 yards to 
the deadline giving S.A.C. a 1-0 lead. 

The second quarter opened with T.C.S. taking over on 
their own 25. Dunbar carried on the first play for a 20 yard 
gain. A Hyland to Hall pass was good for another 40 and 
the Maroon and Black were on the march. Campbell carried 
to the S.A.C. 10 yard line and after one unsuccessful attempt 
Hyland smashed over the short side climaxing a determined 
down-field drive. Winnett's convert was good. St. Andrew's 
came back strongly, moving the ball to the Trinity 35. A 
hard-fighting T.C.S. line led by Nanton and Outerbridge 
stopped this threat and forced St. Andrew's to kick. The 
punt was fumbled and Weiss recovered for S.A.C. on Trinity's 
six yard line. From there Manning plunged for the major 
score and he also converted. The half ended with the score 
7-6 in St. Andrew's favour. 


St. Andrew's started strongly in the second-half but 
were stopped when Proctor fell on an S.A.C. fumble. Jenkins 
ran a perfect reverse making up valuable yardage, but 
Trinity was forced to kick putting the ball deep into S.A.C. 
territory. Trinity's defence, spearheaded by Lash and Robb, 
held the Saints and they were forced to kick. Two quick 
passes to Jenkins and Robb put T.C.S. into a perfect posi- 
tion for a field goal. Winnett's placement was good making 
the scoreboard read 9-6. A fumble at centre field and an 
end run by Keith to the T.C.S. 30 put S.A.C. in scoring 
position but the Red and White failed to break through 
the Trinity line. Muirhead kicked for a single at the close 
of the third quarter making the score 9-7 in Trinity's favour. 

Trinity had possession on their own 25 to start the 
final quarter. Dunbar, Hyland and Campbell carried alter- 
nately, marched the ball down field to the St. Andrew's 
four yard line. On his second attempt Winnett carried over 
for a touchdown which he also converted. With time run- 
ning out S.A.C. took to the air in a last desperate attempt 
to get back into the game, but they could not click. T.C.S. 
took over on the 35 and had marched into St. Andrew's 
territory when time ran out leaving the final score Trinity 
15, St. Andrew's 8. 

At Exhibition Park, November 4. Won 41-£t. 

In their final game of the season Bigside romped to a 
decisive 41-23 victory over Ridley College at the Exhibition 
Grounds in Toronto. 

Winnett kicked off to Ridley to open the game, and 
after a good run-back on their first play they fumbled to 
give Trinity the ball on Ridley's forty yard line. After a 
series of line plays with Hyland and Campbell carrying, 
Campbell went over to score from ten yards out. Winnett 
converted. Ridley, failing to make yards after the kick-off, 
were forced to kick. A spectacular end sweep was not enough 


for the first down and Campbell kicked to Ridley. Ridley 
now advanced the ball to the Trinity 35 where they lost it 
on downs. The School now began to move, a Hyland to Hall 
pass good for 15 yards, a 10 yard plunge and a Campbell 
to Hall pass set up Jenkins' first touchdown on a short 
end run. To open the second half, Backogeorge threw a 25 
yard pass to Terryberry, then a 35 yarder to Mathews to 
set up Ridley's first touchdown on an 11 yard plunge, run 
by himself. To close the half Trinity marched the ball from 
their own 30 yard line to the Ridley nine where Hyland went 
over standing up, to make the score 18-6 at the half. 

To start the second half, T.C.S. gained the ball and 
caught fire. Large gains by Campbell and Dunbar finally 
resulted in Dunbar crossing the Ridley line. Ridley was 
forced to kick having failed to make ten yards and again 
the School marched. This time Hyland and Campbell moved 
the ball along the ground on long gains up the centre, re- 
sulting in Hyland's second touchdown which Winnett con- 
verted. Seagram now picked up a loose ball after dribbling 
it and ran 40 yards for a converted major. 

Trinity's final touchdown came at the beginning of the 
fourth quarter when Jenkins took the ball around the end 
for a major which Winnett converted. With the score now 
41-6 and nearly all our subs playing, the "Never give up 
nor quit" Ridley team took the ball on the kick-off and 
Mathews raced 70 yards for a touchdown. Then after a short 
kick, a 65 yard pass play from Backogeorge to Boadway 
down the right sidelines accounted for the second major 
of the quarter for the Black and Orange. The final score 
came in the dying minutes when another long pass from 
Backogeorge clicked, this time to Jennings who went all 
the way for the major, a 50 yard pass play. Matheson failed 
to convert this score, so the game ended 41-23 in the School's 

Backogeorge and Mathews stood out for the Orange and 
Black while no one could pick a stand out for the Trinity 
team as they all played exceptionally well. 



At Port Hope, October 6. Lost 12-0. 

In their third game of the season T.C.S. was defeated 
by a somewhat stronger ball club, 12-0. 

From the opening minutes of the game the hard hitting 
Lakefield backs pushed steadily downfield. Finally Dave 
Ritchie scored on a wide sweep around the end. In the 
second quarter T.C.S. put up a good front wall to push 
back the onrushing attacks which fell short on the last 
play of the half when Peter Budge intercepted a pass on his 
own twenty and ran all the way down to the five before 
being pushed into touch. 

Throughout the second half both teams were evenly 
matched with Marett making some good gains behind the 
outstanding blocking of Bowen and Woolley. But T.C.S. 
were unable to score despite their endeavours. Then to- 
wards the end of the final quarter Lakefield' s Chris Gordon 
made a brilliant interception of a Trinity pass and galloped 
over for a T.D. Mike Creswicke added the extra point on 
both counts and when the final whistle blew, the score 
read Lakefield 12, Trinity 0. 

T.C.S. vs. RIDLEY 
At U.C.C., October 8. Won 17-11. 

On Saturday, October 8, Middleside travelled to Tor- 
onto where they defeated a lighter team from St. Catharines. 
Perhaps it was the help of many cold poached eggs which 
gave the Trinity boys that extra drive. 

In the early minutes of the game Bowen, Woolley and 
Mockridge all broke through the Ridley line, blocked their 
punt and recovered it for Trinity. With a series of line 
plunges Budge carried the ball over for the first Trinity 
major. The convert was kicked by Shier. Ridley picked up the 
tying points when Trinity fumbled in their own end zone and 
Dick Towric of Ridley recovered. Dunlop converted. Trinity 


then came back with Budge scoring two quick T.D.'s on 
long runs of 60 and 30 yards. The latter T.D. was converted 
by Shier. In the dying minutes of the game Ridley recov- 
ered a Trinity fumble and Ted Sears carried over from the 
5, for an unconverted touchdown. 

The final score was 17-11 in favour of the Trinity squad. 

T.C.S. vs. U.O.C. 
At Port Hope, October 22. Lost 11-5. 

The return match against U.C.C. was a defeat for the 
Trinity squad. But the play was even closer than the score 

The opening kick-off was received by U.C.C. but after 
two plays they were forced to kick. Things looked encourag- 
ing for Trinity as they marched fifty-five yards on three 
consecutive first downs. U.C.C. recovered the ball after a 
Trinity fumble and then on an end run drew the first blood. 
The convert was good which gave U.C.C. the lead of 6-0 
at quarter time. Trinity quickly recovered and Dave Marett 
carried the ball on an end run to the U.C.C. 6 yard line. 
From this point Iain Mitchell plunged through the line for 
an unconverted touchdown. At half time the score was 6- 
5 with U.C.C. holding the slight margin. 

During the third quarter and most of the fourth there 
was no scoring. Trinity's attack brought them several times 
to the U.C.C. 10 yard line but they could not push the ball 
over. In the dying minutes of the game U.C.C. increased 
their lead by five more points on an unconverted touchdown 
through the centre of the line. 

The game ended with U.C.C. winning 11-5. The mem- 
bers of both teams must be congratulated for pla3nng an 
excellent game of football. 




At Port Hope, October 6. Won 28-11 

Continuing their two game winning streak, Littleside 
opened the scoring in the first quarter with a strong down- 
field march, the scoring play being made by Hyland on a 
short end run, Stephenson converting. After this, the play 
steadied to a hard battle. Eventually, in the second quarter, 
T.C.S. turned on some power plays and scored on a plunge 
by Knight. Stephenson again converted making the score 
at half-time 12-0 in favour of the School. 

Soon after the break, T.C.S. again started rolling down 
the field and went all the way on a pass to Smith. The 
convert was again made good by Stephenson, thus putting 
the School ahead 18-0. Lakefield got on their feet almost 
immediately and, on a long pass, went almost two-thirds of 
the field's length for an unconverted touchdown. The 
balance swung the other way equally quickly and T.C.S. 
rallied with another unconverted touchdown on a second 
long pass to Smith. After the three-quarter mark in the 
game, Lakefield once more swung into power and made their 
second touchdown. The convert was a successful one by 
Wolf, making the final score read 23-11 in favour of T.C.S. 
Smith and Knight were standouts for T.C.S. while Hosking 
played a very good game for Lakefield. 

T.C.S. vs. RIDLEY 
At U.C.C., October 12. Won 22-0. 

On Saturday, October 12, Littleside played Ridley at 
U.C.C. in a very close hard-fought contest, with T.C.S. 
emerging victors 22-0. 

The first quarter was uneventful, with neither team 
showing superiority over the other. However, midway 
through the second quarter Hyland hit Smith with a long 
pass for the first major of the game. Stephenson converted, 
and Trinity led 6-0 at half-time. 


In the third quarter Trinity started to roll. Hyland 
again nabbed Smith with a long pass for a T.D. The convert 
was good. Minutes later Stephenson kicked a 15 yard field 
goal, putting T.C.S. ahead 15-0 at the end of the third quar- 
ter. In the final quarter Ridley put on a determined drive, 
but were rouged in their own end zone, when a T.C.S. field 
goal attempt, missed. Then, just before the final whistle 
blew, Barbour ii passed to Smith, who stumbled over for 
his third major of the game. The convert was good and when 
the game ended, the score read 22-0 for T.C.S. 

T.C.S. vs. U.C.C. 
JLt Port Hope, October 19. Won 17-1« 

Playing a more experienced team than before, Littleside 
opened with a surprisingly quick touchdown. Recovering 
their own kick-off, Littleside started with a long pass by 
Hyland to Smith, who easily made the touchdown. Stephen- 
son converted as he did six minutes later, after a long drive 
by T.C.S. which ended in a touchdown by Knight. This made 
the score 12-0 in Trinity's favour, and before U.C.C. could 
get back on their feet, Littleside again pushed them back 
and made their third touchdown on a run through centre 
by Hyland. After the first quarter mark U.C.C. got or- 
ganized and made things tough for Trinity, Dvatney kick- 
ing a rouge and U.C.C. soon scoring a touchdown. After 
being held on several attempts, Trent finally moved the ball 
over into the end zone and Dvatney kicked the convert to 
make the half-time score 17-7. 

The third quarter elapsed without a score for either 
side, although both came very close in their turn, but in 
the fourth quarter U.C.C. dominated the play. With only a 
few minutes left in the game, U.C.C. pushed the ball over 
for a touchdown by Havmer. Their convert was no good 
and both sides battled it out evenly until the end, leaving 
the final score 17-12 in favour of T.C.S. Day, Knight and 
Stephenson were standouts for Littleside, and Dvatney 
and Havmer were U.C.C.'s best contenders. 


T.C.S. vs. S.A.C. 
At Aurora, October 29. Won 30-18. 

Littleside started quickly and soon pushed S.A.C. back 
for a touchdown, made good on an end run by Smith, but 
the convert failed. A minute later, the Saints were again 
on their one yard line, but a long kick eased the play. T.C.S. 
shifted into high gear, however, and soon Hyland ran the 
ball into the end zone, helped by some good blocking by 
Crowe. The convert by Stephenson was good and the play 
became fairly even until Crowe recovered a kick and Trinitj' 
again scored on an end run by Hyland. Stephenson con- 
verted and then S.A.C. began to roll. The Saints marched 
down the field and made their first touchdown on a pass to 
Fell, the convert being kicked by Buchanan. 

The second half opened with T.C.S. predominant, trying 
for a field goal in the first few minutes. The Saints ran the 
ball out to their one yard line and on the next play they were 
trapped in the end zone for two points. St. Andrew's came 
back a little later with a touchdown by McMaster, but Knight 
equaled the score minutes later. With but a minute left in 
the game. Knight again scored and Stevenson converted, 
making the final score 30 to 10 in favour of T.C.S. 

Crowe, Hyland and Knight were best for T.C.S. while 
Black and McMaster were standouts for St. Andrew's. 


This year with everyone in the School playing football, 
a Middleside League was formed for those who failed to 
make the Middleside team. The league was under the direc- 
tion of Mr. Armstrong, Mr. Gordon, Mr. White and Mr. 
Brown, each coaching a team. The teams were very evenly 
matched and every game proved to be a close and exciting 
contest. Each team played ten games and at the end of 
the regular schedule a play-off was held between the first 
place and second place teams. Mr. White's team finished 
at the top of the loop, with 17 points, Mr. Gordon's team

was the ninner-up with nine points, and Mr. Brown's squad 
finished in third place with four points. 

In the play-off between Mr. White's "Whizzers" and Mr. 
Gordon's "Hogs," the "Hogs," wound up on the top side of 
a 6-5 score. It was a close, exciting game in which each 
team showed some excellent football and sportsmanship. 
Farnsworth scored for the "Whizzers' early in the second 
half, but Mr. Gordon's squad came right back from the 
kick-off and Colby went over from the ten yard line to tie 
the score 5-5, both teams missing the convert. The game 
then settled down to a battle to get the tie-breaking point. 
Finally, in the closing minutes of the game, Ralph kicked 
the point for the "Hogs" from the "Whizzer's" 25. 

Everyone who participated in the league agreed whole- 
heartedly that it was a success and an excellent way to 
learn the fundamentals of football. Our sincere thanks go 
to Mr. Armstrong and the coaches for relinquishing their 
time to help the league get a foothold in its first year. 



At Port Hope, October 15. Lost 2-6. 

In a game which came quite unexpectedly a Pickering 
team managed to outplay the Lightnings of the Littleside 

Throughout the entire first half the home team seemed 
to have the edge with Braden and Black making long gains 
behind the excellent blocking of Connell and Wigle ii. But 
T.C.S. were unable to score despite their endeavors. 

Towards the end of a well-fought second half Pickering 
began to take the upper hand scoring two rouges to make 
the score 2-0. During the final minutes of play the Maroon 
and Black threw everything possible into the attack only 
to be cut short by the final whistle. 

The game was well played and it gave some of the 
younger boys a chance to play in an inter-school contest. 



This year because of the leagues it was decided to have 
two house games for the Littleside and Middleside house 
titles. They were run on a two game total point basis. The 
Littleside league game was won when Brent House ran 
back the opening kick-off for an unconverted touchdown. In 
the last quarter they added a single point to make the final 
score 6-0. The Littleside title was clinched by Brent when 
in the team game Brent also won 6-0. The game was a close, 
hard-fought game with the stronger Brent side being held 
until the dying minutes of the game. 

The Bethime League team defeated Brent House by 
the overwhelming score of 18-0. The game was closer than 
the score indicates but Bethune was able to capitalize on 
a few breaks. Although the Brent House middleside team 
was much the stronger it couldn't overcome the 18-0 score. 
They did, however, win the game 5-3. The highlight of the 
game consisted of three consecutive goal line stands by 
Bethune House led by Bob Sherwood. 

The Bigside House game for the first time in over seven 
years was won by Bethune House. Led by a strong line 
they defeated Brent House 7-0. In the first half Brent House, 
led by the strong running of Mac Campbell and Rusty Dun- 
bar, advanced the ball to the Bethune three only to be 
stopped by the big Bethime line. A few minutes later Bill 
Jenkins went from his own thirty-five through centre all 
the way for a touchdown. Drummond converted making 
the half-time score 6-0. The rest of the game went score- 
less until Irwin kicked a single point with two minutes to 
go leaving the final score 7-0 for Bethune House. 



The annual Magee Cup Cross Country Race, which was 
held over the Thanksgiving week-end, got off to a good 
start under excellent running conditions. The race this year 


was again put back to the original route which runs well 
behind the Junior School. As the gun sounded Hyland and 
Barbour ii were off at a good pace to take the lead, which 
they held until approximately the half way mark. Crowe 
and Hart now began to pull ahead and finally Hart took 
the lead just as they came over the fence and onto the 
Junior School playing fields. BYom here on in it was Hart 
all the way to the tape. Others to finish in the top six were : 
Crowe, Wigle, D. H., Gordon, H. D. L., Molson, Balfour and 
Barbour, P.G. 


The fifty-ninth annual cross-country race was won this 
year by Richard Seagram in 26 minutes and 30 seconds over 
a very muddy course. This race is the oldest annual cross- 
country race in Canada and has been run consistently since 
1894. Bethune House placed five consecutive runners after 
Seagram to win the House Cup by 15 points, 35-20. Hart, 
a new boy, came in second, finishing only 15 seconds after 
Seagram, making the finish most exciting. 

The order of runners at the finish: — R. Seagram, Brent; 
R. S. Hart, Bethune; R. K. Ferrie, Bethune; C. W. Colby, 
Bethune; J. Vernon, Bethune; D. Dunlap, Bethune; D.

How endless this term looked in September after the 
freedom of the Summer! But here we are already talking 
of Christmas examinations; the New Boys are no longer 
"new" but have become T.C.S. boys; holiday arrangements 
are being made. It is hard to believe that the days have 
flown by so fast. 

Our annual Hallowe'en Party was well up to standard 
and the costumes were as varied and ingenious as ever. The 
four winning groups show the variety of ideas : "The Junior 
School Staff," a Chain Gang, Marilyn Bell and the Lake- 
shore Swimming Club, A Chinese Laimdry! 

A Christmas pantomime is already well under way under 
the capable direction of Mr. Burns and Mrs. Spencer. Mr. 
Dennys has his chorus well in hand and we hope for a good 

The Intra-Mural Soccer League is in full swing and the 
competition and calibre of soccer played have never been 

A Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all in 
the Jimior School. 


This year the librarians have been kept busy keeping 
track of all the books which have been taken out and re- 
turned to the Library. There have been three hundred and 
eight books read between September the thirteenth and 
November the twenty-second. At an average, every boy in 
the School has read approximately five books during that 
period of time. 

The most popular fiction books seem to be : The Tunnel, 
The Baron's Hostage, The Good Shepherd, The Wooden 
Horse, The Call of the Wild, The Old Man and The Sea, 
The Ninth Legion, and Cocos Sold. 

The most popular non-fiction books are: Reach for the 
Sky, Escape or Die, The Dam Busters, Operation Cicero, 


Test Pilot, The Sound Barrier, Big Stuff, and The Man Who 
Never Was. 

The Library routine is conducted by senior boys. The 
Library Fund has purchased many excellent books. Since 
June of this year, eighteen fiction and twelve non-fiction 
have been added to our shelves. Book donations are also 
received from time to time and are always very acceptable.

Darkness, like one vast cloud stretching from horizon to 

Approaches the western sky, pressing the sun's eking rays 

out of sight. 
The last inkling of light vanishes behind some distant hills. 
The moon wanders into view, a golden smile on his coimten- 

From his lofty perch he admires the splendour of the heavens 
Until the premier rays of dawn and the twittering of the 

Proclaim the coming of the day.

Night is usually thought of as a time when the sun 
goes down and everyone goes to bed. Some people are in- 
terested only in soft, downy beds and some in T.V. sets. 
Others watch for and see the true beauty of these few quiet 

On any clear night, one can look up and see millions of 
twinkling stars shining like diamonds in the sky with a 
great pearl, the moon, in their midst. 

In the summer, a silver fish may be seen breaking the 
water of a quiet mirror-like lake. During the winter, you 
may see a soft glittering snow-bank beside an icy road. 


Many nights are celebrated. On Hallowe'en ghosts and 
goblins roam the streets. Santa comes down the chimney 
on the night before Christmas. There are other nights that 
are celebrated too, but the stars and moon are almost always

It shines so brilliantly, 

Cutting through the skies 

With its powerful light; 

And blinds our eyes 

For a moment. 

Then, blotted by clouds 

As they float by, 

And then again shining forth 

With its heavenly hght.

We sit in warm rooms, 
By the fire bright; 
He slept in a manger 
On that cold, frosty night. 

We live in comfort; 
He a stable bare; 
The angel choirs sang a song 
Which floated on the air. 
We have glad company; 
He some shepherds rude; 
We lie in warm beds; 
He a manger crude.

Far inland, one of the most spectacular sights in the 
world is staged. A waterfall cascades over a tremendous 
cliff to a canyon overgrown with tropical shrubbery and 
dotted with clusters of vividly-coloured flowers. The falls 
jet from the cliff at many different places, stretching for 
a mile or so, and broken up only by small islands perched 
on the edge of the precipice. The whole valley below the 
falls is covered with an eternal mist which creates a fan- 
tastic rainbow, extending from the crest of the falls until 
out of sight deep in the valley. At the bottom of the can- 
yon a dense tropical jungle of multi-coloured flowering 
trees, giant ferns, and a thick, carpet-like bed of moss 
completes this fantastic sight.

Silhouetted against the dark sky and surrounded by 
the softly falling snow, it stands as it has stood for years — 
the figure of an unknown hero who with many other such 
men died for their country for peace and for freedom in 
the 1914-18 World War. 

The figure is tall with a few small cracks in the fore- 
head, the result of storms and bad weather down through 
the years. He is marching forward bravely with a flag in 
one hand and a wreath in the other. 

The base of the monument is square. On all four sides 
are large shiny slabs of marble and on three of the four 


sides are engraved the names of the men who from that 
particular community had been killed in battle. On the 
fourth side in big gold letters are the few words that mean 
so much, "Lest we forget".

The tall, tawny brave approached the trading post 
with slow relaxed steps. In his long ebony hair an eagle 
feather was lodged while his eyes were dark, beady and 
deepset like those of a cougar. 

From the muscular neck of the brave dangled a set of 
bear's claws and around his shoulder a blanket was draped. 
His pants were of deer skin while his feet were shod with 
finely embroidered moccasins. 

He was no ordinary Indian; he was Piskiart of the 
Algonquins, probably one of the most feared and blood- 
thirsty tribes of all the Indian nations.

The glacier begins in a half -moon shaped valley which 
is surrounded by steep walls. This great basin is called a 

Snow is blown into the "cirque" by storms or from 
avalanches. It does not melt but gets deeper and deeper 
as it piles on forcing the air out of the lower layer. 

Water dripping down from above freezes, forming a 
great chunk which slowly forces its way out of the valley 
and down the sides of the mountain. This is called a glacier. 
When it reaches below the snow belt, it begins to melt and 
break up. Now this cycle is over but will continue endlessly 
for many years to come.

Hail is usually formed during a thunder storm in warm 
weather when currents of air are rising to the top of the 
thunder cloud. As the currents rise, they take with them 
drops of rain which freeze when reaching a higher altitude. 
Since the frozen raindrops are heavier, they fall back from 
where they started. Sometimes they will catch another and 
take on another layer of ice and snow. This may go on 
until the hailstone weighs as much as a pound and measures 
three to four inches in diameter. 

Each year hail storms do enormous damage; they beat 
down crops such as corn and wheat, strip the trees of their 
leaves and sometimes, during very bad storms, livestock and 
poultry are killed.

In the heart of the Belgian Congo, a crude little church 
had been erected for the natives. Although the church was 
very small, it had a church yard. 

It was not, however, a church yard as we think of one. 
It was a native burial ground. The jungle had been cleared 
of all its scrub growth in an area of about fifty feet across. 
Only the huge moss and vine-covered trees remained. These 
trees were full of strange, brightly coloured birds. The 
graves could only be distinguished by mounds of earth and 
two carved wooden poles at the head and foot each. On the 
top of each mound were a few weapons that the dead man 
could use in his future life. Around each grave were placed 
brilliantly coloured stones. One of the mounds had been 
ripped up by some savage animal. In the centre of the 
graves was a small fire which was kept going day and night 
to ward off evil spirits. 

This was not exactly what I would call a church yard.

The Northern Lights, also known as the Aurora Bore- 
ealis, named after Aurora the Roman Goddess of Dawn, 
are a display of colour seen in the northern sky. They 
consist of a greenish-white arch from which long rays of 
green, violet or rose dart. Sometimes these rays meet over- 
head to form the "boreal crown." When this happens half 
the sky may be alive with light which often takes several 
hours to fade away. 

This phenomenon is accompanied by a simultaneous 
display in the Antarctic so that to an observer on another 
planet the Earth would look like a glowing neon sign.

In Japan the fan is to represent the emblem of life. Why 
is the fan considered the emblem of life? 

As you know, when you open a fan, its blades spread 
out from the rivet. So the way of hfe opens up for a happy 
future. The rivet is strong that binds the blades together 
and is a sign of steadiness and security. 

So, as you see, the fan is not only an object to keep 
ourselves cool, but to the Japanese it is the emblem of life.

I had been wandering for days in the desert. I was 
dying of hunger and choking with thirst. My mind was 
blank and I was going beserk. A bit of wind was blowing up 
and the sand was blowing in my face. I almost tripped on 
an old buckboard. My mind was wandering from one thing 
to another. Then I saw some footprints in the sand. I looked 
at them once or twice and saw that they were mine; I had 
been walking in circles. I tripped a couple of times and the 
last time I couldn't get up. So I lay there to die,

In Asia, Africa, and parts of the Philippines, many 
people have felt death and pain from the bite of the Cobra, 
one of the deadliest snakes in the world. 

Snakes of this type are by far the most notable of the 
short fanged poisonous reptiles. Another snake of this kind 
is the American coral snake. 

The bite of a snake of this type is quite often fatal and 
usually reacts within a half an hour depending on the 
distance between bite and heart. Most species are five to six 
feet long but the larger types have ranged to eighteen feet 
in length. 

Cobra feed on smaller reptiles, field mice, birds and little

The Rugby Squad was not strong this year and, al- 
though we did improve in skill and knowledge during the 
season, we never looked like a winning team in any of our 

One of the chief reasons for our lack of success during 
the season lay in a serious lack of really experienced players 
capable of rallying the newcomers in moments of stress. 
Even the Argos, however, have to go through difficult 
times when rebuilding — so we are in good company! 

If the boys on the Squad enjoyed the game for itself, 
the season was well worthwhile. 



The two closest games of the season were played 
against Lakefield. We lost the game at Lakefield 17-5, and 
the return match here which closed our season 17-6. We 
probably produced our best football of the season in this 
last game. 

A very strong and skilful Ridley team had little trouble 
against us at U.C.C. on October 19, beating us 44-0. 

The Upper Canada team, who matched us closely in 
age and weight, showed some very sound football to come 
out on top of a 19-0 score. 

The St. Andrew's squad, although not playing a num- 
ber of their first-string players, were still too strong for 
us and won by a score of 27-0.

We are indebted to the Rev. John Mockridge for the

ridge : "He was born at Port Stanley, on June 29, 1861, and 
was at T.C.S. from 1876 to 1878. He was considered to be 
the leading soprano in the Choir at the School — at that time 
the Choir was the best in Canada. Whitney Mockridge con- 
tinued his singing after leaving School in the Toronto Phil- 
harmonic Society and later he sang at the reception given 
in Toronto for the Princess Louise and the Marquis of Lome. 
He then studied in Chicago and in London, England, and 
later joined the Carl Rosa Opera Company where he sang 
leading tenor roles in London and other parts of England. 
Later he won much distinction under Sir Joseph Barnby and 
other well-known conductors; on several occasions he sang 
at Command Performances before members of the Royal 
Family." Whitney Mockridge is now living in Capetown, 
South Africa.

Board of the Toronto Stock Exchange, a position held by 
his father before him. 

John David Eaton ('22-'24) was recently inducted into 
the Quarter Century Club of the T. Eaton Company. This 
is "an exclusive club that no one can crash into, or buy into. 
The only way you can qualify is through 25 years' service 
in the company that Timothy Eaton founded 86 years ago." 
"John David Eaton's quarter century with the company has 
witnessed his own rise from men's wear clerk, truck driver, 
department manager, store manager and director, to the 

presidency of the firm." 


William Herridge ('40- '49) continues to make his mark

News of another Old Boy came in a recent letter from 
Vancouver, where Arthur B. Whish ('00-'03) is living. In 
telling something of his past life, he mentions that in August, 
1914, he became Baron de la Whish, the last to bear the 
title. The name and title were brought into England by 
Captain Richard, Baron de la Wyche, (the spelling of the 
name was altered to "Whish" in 1776) at the time of the 
Norman Invasion. In the Twelfth Century lived Richard de 
la Wyche, a great grandson of the aforementioned Baron, 
who was Bishop of Chicester 700 years ago, and Chancellor 
of Oxford University. He received the honours of sanctity 
from the moment of death, and is entombed in Chichester 
Cathedral. He was canonised in 1262. On February 1, this 
year, St. Richard's Church was dedicated in North Van- 
couver; T.C.S. Boys will have an interest in this new 
Church, now it is known that a direct descendant of the 
Patron Saint is an Old Boy of T.C.S. 

In a letter from Kowloon, Hong Kong, dated 14th of 
June, 1955, Christopher Willis ('01-'04) tells some interest- 
ing facts of life in that part of the world. 

"A day or two ago I received Bulletin No. 3, and was 
very much interested to see it, and to be reminded of old 
familiar names, some with grandsons now at the School. 
I see E. G. Joy is one such ; he and I won a prize for a collec- 
tion of Wild Flowers in 1903, given by Mr. F. J. A. Morris. 

"The Bulletin was forwarded to me from Shanghai; 
and it is a wonder that it reached me ; I think you could not 
have had anything very bad about the Communists in it! 

"My sister is still in Shanghai, where we have two 
Christian Book Shops open. We opened these over thirty 
years ago, and through all the vicissitudes, one at least 


has been held open, even during the Japanese War, when 
we were interned. It is amazing how much literature still 
goes out, and to the furthest points in China. In many parts 
there is a real hunger for the Word of God, particularly 
among medical students and many others. At one Univer- 
sity, they had an early morning Prayer Meeting with some- 
thing like a hundred students attending. (N.B. This is in 
Communist China.) We are not permitted to send in new 
stocks for sale, but mercifully we had good stocks in hand 
when the trouble broke. Some of these have been made into 
a Circulating Library to make them available to as many 
as possible. There is a great need for Russian Bibles and 
Testaments. I heard a few weeks ago of one congregation 
of over a hundred members where Russian is spoken and 
they have only two hymn books and I think the same number 
of Bibles." 

The following Old Boys were among those who visited 
the School Thanksgiving week-end: St. Clair Balfour ('22- 
'27), R. E. McLaren ('21-'25), R. B. Wotherspoon ('25-'31),

Often people regard modern music and modern painting 
with contempt and judge it as bad. Such an attitude is 
imfair and for the most part those who constantly make 
such judgments are not qualified to do so. How can one 
judge a literary work written in French, if he is absolutely 
ignorant of the language? While there are many people 
who understand and enjoy the different kinds of music and 
painting, there are also those who don't because they have 
not learned to appreciate them, yet they arbitrarily con- 


demn all modem art, good or bad. When we realize that 
music and painting are methods of expression, then we see 
that they are closely allied to languages, and as such they 
vary in form and method of expression from age to age as 
well as from race to race. We do not know how to speak 
and express ourselves in all languages, but usually we try 
to learn more than one, and a person is considered more 
cultured if he does know several languages. We do not con- 
demn other languages as meaningless and useless just be- 
cause we have not taken the pains to understand them and 
learn to use them properly. 

Examine music and painting in this light. Music was 
first used in ballads as an accompaniment to words, or as 
rhythm for a dance. In the one case the words and in the 
other the movements of the dance were the important part, 
they carried the message. With time, however, music be- 
came independent as a method of expression, and definite 
rules were set down, dictating how anything could be ex- 
pressed by music. From time to time people revolted against 
this domination of rules, finding the boundaries inadequate, 
and writing music in the way they thought it best expressed 
what they wanted to say. Of course, such attempts always 
met with a storm of opposition from the preceding genera- 
tion and many musicians did not get recognition during 
their life-time, but only after their death, when the new 
generation grew up with this new "music language," and 
found it not only understandable but also satisfying. An 
example of such "new" music is modem jazz, and music 
written by such men as Paul Hindemith. Most teen-agers 
like jazz and can feel its message, yet to most of our grand- 
parents it is just an annoying noise and they don't like it. 
Our grandparents grew up with a different sort of music, 
and they cannot now get used to the new sound. Likewise, 
teen-agers don't like the music our grandparents grew up 
with; the sound is unfamiliar and means nothing to them. 
The same happens with what is called classical music. When 
Hindemith, to choose one among the many contemporary 


composers, wrote the "Hymn to the Sun," he expressed his 
ideas in a "language" diffei^nt to that Beethoven would 
have used. To one who grew up hearing composers of 
Beethoven's time, the "Hymn to the Sun" sounds just like 
a mass of unorganized noises. To learn to understand and 
to like this music, you fii'st have to get used to its sound 
and to learn this other language. 

With painting the situation is similar. There are an 
extremely large number of languages in painting. Some 
painters stress colour combinations, others stress lines, or 
figures, or they exaggerate that part which they consider 
to be most important. The painter need not, when painting 
a tree, draw a trmik, branches and leaves, but he may by 
means of colour and figure arrangements express the feel- 
ing a tree creates in him. We can learn to understand 
impressionism and all other "isms," these languages, and 
we will be able to see in pictures what the painter expressed, 
no matter what "language" he chose for his medium. 

In music as well as in painting, a multitude of different 
methods, "languages," are used to express joy and sorrow, 
meditation and frivolity, religious experience, war and love. 
If one can understand the many different languages in which 
these same things are again expressed, always differently, 
only then may he dare to judge in these matters.

Dear Editor: 

The October and December issues of "The Record" 
were, in my opinion, by far the best ever published. The 
coverage of the School activities and the articles were most 
interesting and informative. 

The constant increase in the number of pages of the 
advertising, to new highs, prompts me to extend congratula- 
tions on this effort and accomplishment. Most particularly 
would I wish to commend the Editor, the Business Manager, 
and their assistants for these results. 


To the above mentioned and all others who are con- 
tributing to make "The Record" so representative of the 
School's fine influence, I would extend best wishes and again 


Philip M. Spicer. 



On Sunday, November 13, The Venerable Dr. G. B. 
Snell, Archdeacon of Toronto and Rector of St. Clement's 
Church, spoke to us in Chapel. 

He began by telling us of the wise builder who counts 
the cost before he starts a job, so that he will not run out 
of money before he finishes. 

Jesus also counted the cost of his life on earth dedicated 
to our service. His disciples did the same before they 
went out to better the world. They must have known what 
finally lay in store for them, but although Jesus and eleven 
of his twelve disciples died martyrs' deaths, they did not 
falter after starting. 

He gave other examples of men who have counted the 
cost and then gone on and sacrificed themselves for the 



good of mankind. Tindell, who wanted the Holy Bible trans- 
lated into English did so under terrible hardships and was 
eventually put to death for his efforts. Then we must not 
forget the men and women of more recent times. What of 
the Church's missionaries who sacrifice everything they 
have for a life of hardship and pain, just so the other races 
of oui' world might become familiar with the Bible and the 
teachings of Jesus? 

Dr. Snell closed by saying that we too must comit the 
cost before our entry into the world beyond school. As we 
look foi'ward we must consider our Christian faith and not 
forsake it; we must be genuine in our desire for Jesus and 
not just nominal Christians. If we forsake Christianity we 
must have some other way of life, and the alternative is 
dismal. The happiest people are Christians; have we ever 
heard of an unhappy Saint? We must realize there are 
more than earthly things in this world. The cost may not 
be light — but the reward will be worth it! 


On Sunday, November 20, it was a great privilege for 
the School to have the Very Reverend Dean Seaborn speak 
to us. For his topic he took the key words from the 15th 
Chapter of Luke, "lost and found." Explaining these words, 
Mr. Seaborn gave examples in the parables of the lost and 
found sheep, the lost and found coin and the Prodigal Son. 
It is a common trait in humans to belong to someone, as is 
pointed out in these parables. The Lord is aware of this 
characteristic, as well as that of always striving to find 
that which is lost. Since we are the property of GJod, He 
is happy to find one who is lost even though He goes to a 
great deal of trouble in doing so. Jesus was sent to earth 
with the main idea of finding for God, those who were lost. 

There are different kinds of "lostness" which can take 
place although the symptoms of fright, confusion and aim- 
less wandering are common to all. If we are foolish and 


careless, humans unintentionally get lost. They get the 
wrong type of friends and completely forget the church. 
Their life is not controlled and they wander around in a 
state of confusion. Their life has no purpose or aim and 
they do not find their place in life. 

By using the analogy of a coin, Mr. Seaborn showed 
us another sense in which we can be lost. No coin has any 
value if it is kept out of circulation and so if we are absorbed 
in our own activities and don't look beyond our own little 
world, we are also out of circulation. We must be put back 
into availability and take our part in the world. 

The next form of being lost is the intentional state 
depicted by the Prodigal Son who got into real trouble over 
wanting to leave home and rim his owti life. When bad 
times came, his father was still there and so he went re- 
pentantly home, frightened of the punishment he deserved. 
His father, however, was so happy to find him that there 
was a royal welcome waiting. God still wants us even though 
we are lost, and he is always waiting for a homecomer. 

The last form of being lost was that of the elder brother. 
He worked hard and did as he was told but he lost touch 
with his father. This fact became obvious when his yoimger 
brother was treated so well. 

In closing, Mr. Seaborn said that we all get lost some- 
time, each, perhaps, in a different way. Jesus' purpose is 
to bring us back to God, hence no one need be lost for long. 


On Sunday, December 4, Canon Lawrence preached in 
Chapel. He based his address on the word "handful." He 
referred to the seventeenth chapter of the book of Kings. 
"I have not a cake, but a handful of meal in a barrel." After 
quoting the Oxford Dictionary's definition of the word, 
"Quantity that fills the hand," he noted that this amount 
had never been standardized. The yard, or foot, have very 
accurate lengths; but "handful" remains indefinite and 


Then he described the sacrifices at Jerusalem. The rich 
were required to offer a whole lamb to obtain peace of mind. 
The poor, however, fulfilled their obligations by giving a 
handful of flour. 

He went on to tell the School about the siege of Sumaria. 
In this the warriors used handfuls of dust to defeat the 

Canon Lawrence completed his examples of the use of 
the term "handful" with one from the beautiful story of 
Ruth. She had returned home with her sad mother, Naomi, 
and was gathering barley among the stubble. By chance 
she was seen by Boas. He ordered the reapers to let hand- 
fuls of grain fall for her. 

Concluding his sermon, the Chaplain said that in life, 
fortime falls on us a handful at a time. Our success comes 
in handfuls. He showed us the glorious example of Jesus 
who gained his reputation in this way. We obtain success 
not in one fell swoop but by profiting from small ex- 
periences. Success comes to us slowly, in "handfuls" and 
is only gained by persistent effort. 


On Sunday, December 11, Canon Lawrence addressed 
the School in the Chapel, taking for his theme the influence 
of God's only Son, Jesus. The Canon began his sermon by 
asking us what manner of man He was. To answer this 
question, the Canon went on to tell what a few of Jesus' 
contemporaries had written. Pilot, addressing Jesus, said 
to him 'You are, like me, a man under authority. You obey 
God while I obey Caesar.' Peter, one of his disciples said, 
'You are the 'Messiah, you have the ability to be the deliverer 
of the world'. A respectable business man of the period, we 
were told, knew Him to be a teacher. A woman, the Canon 
continued, is said to have bathed His feet with her tears 
and dried them with her hair. St. Paul said to a large 
crowd twenty years after His death that Jesus had great 


intellectual ability and made a great self-sacrifice despite 
many great opportunities. St. Luke said that Jesus will be 
the Judge of the world and in Him all things exist Luke 
went on to say that Jesus came from beyond space and 
time, and He was existing with God and was God's com- 
panion who gives God's word to the people as well as com- 
municating with God himself. Luke, the Canon concluded, 
said that great humility and majesty apply to Jesus. 

Now by these sayings and ideals we can gather what 
impression Jesus made on his fellow countrymen and re- 
ligious followers. Hence we get an idea of what He really 
was like. 


On Sunday, January 15, Dr. Ketchum spoke at evening 
Chapel. He told us that at the beginning of a new year we 
should take stock of ourselves, trying to discover our weak 
points and how to strengthen them. Only after this is done 
can we come to a full self-realization and fulfilment of our 
purpose as children of God. 

A person's life on earth can be compared to a building. 
The ground floor contains our physical life where we look 
after our business, social life and everyday academic in- 
terests. The second floor is the mind. This is our mental 
library and here we face many of life's mental hurdles. If 
we face and conquer these hurdles we are truly strengthening 
our character. The third and last floor is the spiritual side 
of our lives. The furnishings here are rather sparse, a Bible, 
books on philosophy and the thoughts of the world's great 
men. It is our spiritual life which really counts in the world 
to-day and we must visit this floor more often. 

For fulfilment of our purpose in this building every- 
one must feel a sense of belonging. In early life we belong 
to our family, later to our school, college and business. 
Finally a sense of belonging spreads to our town, country 
and the world at large. It is very important that everyone 


have a sense of belonging and being needed by someone or 
something. It is through Christ and our religion that we 
can feel a deep sense of belonging to Gk>d which is our 
ultimate aim. 

In summing up, Dr. Ketchum said that everyone should 
try to develop to the full, love for Christ, God and his re- 
ligion. In this way our love can spread in ever widening 
circles to encompass people everywhere. Only through this 
love of Christ and our religion can we hope to have true 
brotherly love throughout the coming year. 


In evening Chapel on Septuagesima Sunday, the Rev. 
William Bothwell of St. Martin's, Toronto, spoke on the 
significance of the cross in redeeming man's great faults. 
The first great sin is that of self-satisfaction. If we feel 
self-satisfied and judge other people by our standards, 
thinking we are perfect, we need only look at the cross. This 
will bring our reasoning back into proper proportions, and 
we will realize how imperfect we are compared to the per- 
fection of Christ. Thus our redemption is begim. 

Our second great sin is the pride that most of lis 
possess. Jesus was crucified by proud men who could not 
allow themselves to be corrected. However, Jesus saw 
through their pride and implored that they be forgiven. If 
we feel proud and beyond correction, a look at the cross 
will show us how proud men were wrong. 

Fear is the final sin from which we need to be redeemed. 
People in this world are afraid of various misfortunes which 
may befall them. We should never be concerned with out- 
ward circumstances affecting us. When Jesus was crucified 
he lost his friends, and suffered physical pain, but he still 
continued his inner relationship with God. If we can still 
keep in contact with God through any difficulties, we have 
conquered the third great sin, and by a glance at the cross 
we will know that we have been redeemed by following the 
example of Jesus. 



The Rev. Arthur Smith, an Old Boy, who spoke to us 
on February 5, opened his sermon by quoting from the 
Epistle of St. James: "and Abraham was called the Friend 
of God." 

We were told that nearly all people have nicknames 
which usually refer to some special accomplishment or 
feature. We learned of many of the people of the past who 
had nicknames, and one of these was Abraham. He became 
known as the Friend of God because of his character and 
relationship with Him. Though God called on Abraham to 
go through many hardships, the understanding between 
God and Abraham grew over the years until eventually he 
was given his nickname. 

Mr. Smith then continued to tell us that we too may 
become known as "friend of God." It is our destiny and 
the ideal of personal relationship. But one's religion must 
not be confined to personal relationship; it must also have 
fellowship or else it is incomplete. 

We must go to church to see and know God. Many of 
us feel that we attend church too much, but more often 
than not we have yet to get the spirit of religion. God is 
here; He can meet us if we open our eyes and see Him. 


On Sunday, February 12, the Chaplain spoke in Chapel, 
telling us of the temptation of Christ in the wilderness and 
mentioning the shining example that our Lord set us when 
he refused to accept earthly riches and power from the 

Canon Lawrence went on to tell us something of the 
Nazareth in which the child Jesus grew up. He said that 
it was situated near the great traffic route from Egypt 
to Mesopotamia and that the traffic on this route presented 
"a richly coloured panorama of life." The Canon pointed 
out that what our Lord must have seen on that road when 


he was a child represented the kingdoms of the world and 
the glory of them. 

The Canon then pointed out, how wonderful it was, 
therefore, that our Lord should refuse such riches and 
power. However, the Canon said that Christ was looking 
forward to a kingdom, not of serfs and slaves like the great 
earthly kingdoms of his day, but one of friends. The Canon 
showed us that our Lord was not content with earthly 
wealth and riches but was striving towards something more 

In closing. Canon Lawrence referred to the wounded 
eagle which nevertheless kept trying desperately to fly. It 
could not be content with its lot on earth but was striving 
for something better. The Canon urged us to follow the 
example of the eagle and as followers of Christ not to be 
content with worldly success but to strive continually for 
a better world. 


On December 18, the School again presented its annual 
Christmas Carol service. The Chapel was beautifully array- 
ed in spruce and pine which added immensely to the spirit 
of this happy occasion. The choir as usual was in excellent 
form under the able direction of Mr. Cohu. Although the 
service was delayed by the lack of electricity for a few 
minutes, all went according to plan, when it was turned 
on just in time. 

The choir entered the Chapel singing the traditional 
processional hymn, ''Adeste Fideles" which was followed by 
an introduction read by the Headmaster. The service con- 
tinued with a carol, "A Child This Day" arranged by Geof- 
frey Shaw, which was sung by the choir from the balcony. 
Throughout the whole service, the choir displayed remark- 
able talent in its harmony and contrast between the trebles, 
basses and tenors. All did very well and should be com- 
mended on their good work. Following this first carol, the 


first reading, given by Richards from the Junior School, 
was taken from Isaiah 40: verses 1 to 5. In this reading 
we find God sending comfort to His people and through 
Isaiah He told of the future mission of John the Baptist. 
The soloist in the next carol, Watt's "Cradle Song," was E. 
Long who excelled this year as he did last. "God Rest You 
Merry, Gentlemen" was the next carol and then the second 
reading, given by McNairn, was read from Deuteronomy 16 : 
verses 17, 18 and 19. This lesson foretold the coming of 
Christ and was aptly followed by the hymn, "O Little Town 
of Bethlehem" sung by the choir and congregation. The 
Senior Choir then sang "When The Christ Was Born," a 
German translation which was done without organ accom- 
paniment. The Junior Choir sang "Our Brother Is Born" 
and then Meighen gave the third reading from Isaiah 6: 
verses 2, 6 and 7. This lesson tells how the Joy of His King- 
dom shall be increased. The choir again sang a carol, "Good 
King Wenceslas" in which A. M. Campbell and C. J. 
Tottenham were the soloists taking the parts of the king 
and the page respectively. "The Holly and the Ivy" was 
sung next and the treble soloists Leather, Scriven, Murray, 
Arnold, and Brennan i did well in their parts. Steinmetz 
gave the next reading from Daniel 7: verses 13, 14 and 27 
in which Daniel has his vision of the reign of Christ. The 
congregation and choir sang the hymn, "Shepherds in the 
Fields Abiding" which was followed by the Senior Choir 
singing "Villagers All, This Frosty Tide." The Junior Choir 
gave its final solo in the form of "Whence is that Goodly 
Fragrance," an old French carol. The fifth reading, by 
Overholt, from St. Luke 1 : verses 26 to 35, tells of the com- 
ing of Gabriel to Mary to tell her of the advent of Christ. 
Again the choir and the congregation united to sing "The 
First No well" and then the choir gave the carol "Masters 
in the Hall," another old French song. The story of the birth 
of Christ was given by Burns in the sixth reading, St. 
Luke 2: verses 1 to 14. The carol, "Ding Dong Merrily on 
High" and "The Gloria" were also sung. The last reading, 


given by the Headmaster from St. John 2: verses 1 to 14 
tells how the Word was made Flesh. The offering was taken 
up to the accompaniment of "While Shepherds Watched" 
and "Christians Awake." After Canon Lawrence offered 
prayers and the blessing, the service ended with the reces- 
sional hymn, "Hark The Herald Angels Sing." 


On Advent Sunday, November 27, promptly at 8.20 a.m. 
a bus left the Senior School with vestments, hymn books, 
twenty-four senior choristers and the Choirmaster. 

Approaching the Junior School we observed what 
appeared to be a whole regiment milling about the School 
lawns. Closer contact showed twenty-four "Little Men," 
eager and impatient to join the convoy. 

The cry "Take to the tall timbers" was too late: the 
Trebles had arrived and anyone not securely anchored to a 
seat was just out of luck. 

Mrs. Wright, the J.S. housekeeper, also joined us in 
the capacity of Choirmother, replacing Miss E. Wilkin who 
was unable to come. Mrs. Wright was invaluable in getting 
the right boys into their own vestments just when they were 

And so to St. Philip's Church, Weston, the church built 
over a century ago and where the Rev. W. A. Johnson, 
founder of the School was one of the first Rectors. T.C.S. 
boys first worshipped in St. Philip's, Weston. 

Scarcely were we out of sight of the School when several 
"small fry" wailed, "When do we eat!" Imagine that, and 
breakfast still undigested! 

The assembly then settled down to enjoy the trip, aided 
and abetted by a musical outburst from the back seats — 
quite harmonious too, it should be stated. 

Sometime later, to everyone's satisfaction, Eddie and 
Mac discovered a box that looked as though it might have 
possibilities. The "possibilities" turned out to be sandwiches 
(thanks to Mrs. Clarke) — tasty, too, we decided. 


Some "Little Men" thought the supply not quite 
adequate to the occasion. It was pointed out that most 
famous singers performed on an empty stomach — this idea 
was received with a chilly silence. 

Rather to our surprise, and definitely to our hosts', we 
arrived at St. Philip's about ten o'clock. The process of un- 
loading humans and freight successfully accomplished, we 
proceeded to the very commodious vestry in the basement 
of the Church where charming ladies awaited us with jugs 
of hot chocolate. 

Our early arrival gave us time to look over the seating 
accommodation in the Choir Stalls and rehearse the Proces- 
sional. How lucky that this precaution was taken! The 
Stalls normally seat about twenty; seating had been pre- 
pared for thirty; and we were forty-eight! 

The Church Wardens were not the least perturbed and 
chairs miraculously appeared. The fact that some boys had 
to sit sideways like the best grade of sardines troubled them 
not a whit. The service was completely successful, the sing- 
ing never better or more enthusiastic. 

The special music for the Service was the 150th Psalm 
to a setting by Stanford, and the Anthem "Judge Eternal" 

The Rector of St. Philip's, the Rev. Howard K. Matson, 
conducted the service, assisted by the School Chaplain, Canon 
C. G. Lawrence. Mr. C. J. Tottenham read the First Lesson, 
the Headmaster the Second Lesson. The Headmaster also 
gave a short talk on the history of the School mentioning 
some of its distinguished Old Boys who attended at Weston. 

The congregation entirely filled the church, chairs being 
used to seat the large number of visitors, among whom were 
many Old Boys, and parents and friends of the Choristers. 

After the service the Choir was entertained for dinner 
at a nearby Inn by Mr. and Mrs. H. L. Hall. This very kind 
and generous gesture was much appreciated. Head Choir 
Boy, E. Long, voiced our thanks. 



The trip home was uneventful, the bus rather empty 
and strangely quiet. Several familiar figures were missing, 
having suddenly discovered most pressing engagements 


The School sent a set of Bible markers to St. Philip's 
Church, Weston, the Mother Parish Church of T.C.S. They 
were in place for the Service of Dedication of the new 
furnishings and very appreciative letters have been received 
from the Rector and Warden. 



Mr. H. L. Hall has given the School films of the three 
Little Big Four football games played in 1955. They cover 
all the important plays in detail and are particularly well 

taken and edited. 


John Cape ('24-'26) has given the School an Aero re- 
lief map of Canada. It is made by a new process and gives 
more clear detail to scale than any other map of Canada. 
Already it has proved of much interest and use. 

Mr. William Colgate of Toronto has very kindly sent 
to the School a photograph of the old Rectory at Weston, 


the first home of T.C.S. boys from 1865-1868. The building 
was demolished a few years ago. Mr. Colgate has also given 
us a T.C.S. Calendar of the year 1867 when fees were $203 
per annum. 


At the meeting of the Governing Body held on October 
19, T. L. Taylor was elected a member of the Board; on 
January 25, Messrs. C. F. Carsley and J. F. Eaton, both of 
Montreal, were elected members of the Board, Messrs. 
Harold Leather ('09-'ll) and G. S. O'Brian ('07-'12) were 
appointed Life Members, and Messrs. P. A. DuMoulin and 
J. C. dePencier were elected regular members of the Board, 
having been representatives of the Old Boys' Association 
for several years. 


Mr. Argue Martin ('14-'17), Q.C., has succeeded Mr. 
B. .M. Osier, Q.C., as Chairman of the Governing Body. Mr. 
Osier will remain a member of the Executive Committee. 
Mr. Martin belongs to an old and distinguished T.C.S. family, 
some thirty members of which have been at T.C.S.

The annual football dinner was held this year on Decem- 
ber the first. Members of Bigside, Captains and Vice-Cap- 
tains of Middleside and Littleside, and other select boys 
made up the group attending from the student body. Dis- 
tinguished visitors were also there, many of these being 
fathers of the boys on Bigside. 

After a marvellous filet mignon dinner, Dr. Ketchum 
spoke most interestingly on football. He referred to the 
history of football and how in the past, the game was not 
the popular sport it is now, and had, indeed, many times 
been condemned. Mr. Hodgetts spoke next and gave a brief 
resume of the past season. He went on to say that this 
season was probably the last one in which many of the 
present boys would be playing together. These same boys 


had worked their way up, many of them right from the 
Jimior School. 

The team captain, Mac Campbell, spoke next, saying 
how much the team appreciated Mr. Hodgetts' help and 
encouragement, and then presented him with a pair of skis. 
Mr. Hubie Sinclair was also presented with a small token 
of the team's appreciation for the help he had given through- 
out the season. Derek Drummond was mentioned as being 
the best manager a team could ask for, always ready and 
helpful, ably assisted by Tony LeMoine. He closed by wish- 
ing the returning boys the best of luck for next year's squad. 

»Mr. Landry then told how successful the two League 
football teams had been, under the guidance of Messrs. 
Armstrong and Scott. With every boy in the School playing 
football, a greater interest was developed in the sport, and 
because of this, more incentive was given to the First Team. 
Mr. Argue Martin spoke a few words of congratulation to 
the team. 

Next, the various awards were presented to Bigside, 
with Old Boys making the presentations. Each boy on the 
team received an identification bracelet, a pair of School 
cuff-links, a wall mat, significant of a championship team 
and a crest to be put on the colour sweaters, the latter 
being presented by some of the fathers present. 

Prizes were given out, with Mac Campbell receiving the 
Most Valuable Player on Bigside award, and also the Kick- 
ing, Catching, and Passing Cup. Richard Seagram was 
awarded the Oxford Cup by his father, for the annual Oxford 
Cup cross-country race. Peter Budge received the Most 
Valuable Player on Middleside award and Frank Stephen- 
son, the Captain's Cup for Littleside. Richard Smith had 
been elected the Most Improved Player on Littleside and 
received a football. 

This year Distinction awards were given to Campbell, 
Long, Ferrie, Burns, Jenkins, Nanton, Caryer, and Outer- 
bridge. These boys received congratulations and will receive 
their awards at a later date. 


Entertainment throughout the evening was supplied 
by the voices of Richard Seagram, Ed Long, Mac Campbell, 
and by the well known band of Adam Saimders. 

This very successful football dinner came to an end 
with the showing of some of the Little Big Four movies 
which iMr. Hall so kindly arranged for and gave to the 


"Sachmo" Saunders and his "High Brow Hep Cats" got 
the ball rolling with a jazzed up version of "Twelfth St. 
Rag" and "When the Saints Go Marching In," which blared 
through the transformed assembly room. On the stage, for 
which we thank all those boys who helped in setting it up 
and those who organized the programme, the dormitories 
competed for a large cake by putting on skits which kept 
the audience in laughter all the v/ay through. Middle Dorm 
Brent won the cake with a satire of the radio detective pro- 
gramme "Dragnet"; however. Middle Dorm called it "Fag- 
net" and the detectives were Prefects who were tracking 
down a fag who put black polish on a Prefect's good pair 
of brown shoes. After a few jokes from our announcers we 
saw Top Dorm Bethune's skit which was an extremely 
funny interpretation of the Prefects' "Rock Talk." James 
House advertised "Skookum" experiments which absolutely 
guarantee a white precipitate and the Trinity House boys 
gave us many good reasons on why not to umpire baseball 
games as a career. 

We were then entertained by a very harmonious trio 
who sang "I Talk to the Trees" and when they had finished 
we were all left dreaming of the Tropic Islands. The "Hep 
Cats" played "White Christmas" and the "Six Discords" 
gave the New Boys some helpful information on washing 
Prefects' football pants, sung by candlelight to the tune 
of "While Shepherds Watched their Flocks by Night." Two 
"Cowpokes" from the Middle Four Manor in Brent gave us 


some "Hill-Billy" Music, yodelling and singing while they 
strummed their guitars. The Six Pipers dressed up as 
ministers and told us about joining their Sunday School, 
where we were told Bible Stories that you "never heard 
before." Finally Middle Dorm Bethune gave their version 
of "This Is Your Life" calling from the audience an unknow- 
ing participant. 

Mrs. McCann presented the cake to Middle Dorm Brent 
and when the Orchestra had closed the evening with "Auld 
Lang Syne," the iMiddle Dorm boys made a quick exit with 
the cake and the rest of the School disappeared after them. 
Although we don't know what happened to the cake, we do 
know that everyone enjoyed himself and that it was one 
of the best Variety Nights the School has had for a long 


On Sunday, January 13, Mr. and Mrs. John Cartwright 
visited the School. Mr. Cartwright is an Old Boy of the 
School who owns a 70 square mile cattle ranch near High 
River, Alberta. He and his wife showed the School some 
films expertly taken by himself. They were in colour and 
represented the year round activities on a western Canadian 
Ranch. There were six films in all; three were devoted to 
the various methods used to run a large cattle ranch. We 
witnessed the branding of cattle, breaking of the horses 
and harvesting of the crops. Everyone was particularly 
impressed with the hay stacker and wood splitter which 
Mr. Cartwright ingeniously devised. The wood splitter was 
a huge iron fly wheel with an axe head welded to it. It was 
interesting to note that cattle drives to the markets have 
become a thing of the past. Huge trucks carrying 28 steers 
apiece were seen rumbling across the prairies. The other 
films illustrated the way of life of the Indians in the area 
and the incomparable mountain scenery. One of the high- 
lights of the evening was a section at the end of one of the 


films taken when the T.C.S. Western trip visited the ranch 
in the summer of 1953. It looked as if some of the boys on 
the trip would make good rodeo riders as they climg to the 
back of an unfortunate steer. Everyone in the School 
greatly enjoyed the films and for those that have not visited 
the west they offered a warm invitation. 


Used postage stamps were first sent from Trinity 
College School to assist mission work in Australia in 1950. 
When the interest began to grow, and the number sent 
became noticeable, the Bishop of Tasmania expressed his 
thanks and suggested that we might care to devote our 
contribution to a definite purpose. The secretary of the 
Church Missionary Society, resident at Hobart, Tasmania, 
invited us to "adopt" a 14-year old aborigine boy and pro- 
vide (from the proceeds of the sales of our stamps) for his 
maintenance at one of the C.M.S. mission schools in Northern 
Australia. This we have done. 

Early in 1955 we undertook to collect and transmit 
1,000 used stamps per week. Our greatest difficulty was to 
secure stamps during the 15 weeks of the year when T.C.S. 
is not in session. Several of the boys enlisted the interest 
of members of their families and before the end of the year 
we had forwarded 52,600. Our correspondent at Hobart 
has written his appreciation and we are grateful to our 
friends who have helped. We have already a good start on 
our quota for 1956. 


Squadron Leader Brian of the R.C.A.F. visited the 
School on Saturday, January 20, and showed us two Air 
Force films in the assembly room. The first was the "Fly 
Past" at Farnborough, which showed all the latest wierd 
and "souped-up" looking deltas and fighters capable of 


supersonic flight. In the film were shown also airliners, 
bombers, transports and helicopters, all of British design 
excepting one plane, Canada's own CF-100 which was also 
put through its paces. The film also showed Sir Anthony 
Eden taking a ride in the huge "Vulcan" delta bomber. 

The second film was about Canada's Air Force and 
showed the training being given to a pilot, navigator and 
radio technician. 

When the film was ended, Squadron Leader Brian kindly 
stayed behind to answer all the queries and questions the 
boys had to ask. He told us that the U.S. is paying Canada 
to develop the flying-saucer, that it will be able to take- 
off like a helicopter and yet be speedy and simple in design. 
Some boys wondered why the under-carriage of some super- 
sonic planes is mounted so far below the fuselage. Squadron 
Leader Brian told us that this is to prevent the flying sur- 
faces from getting involved with the ground turbulence. 
Some bombers now feature engines that can be lowered 
from the wing and carted away because of the high under- 

We are all very grateful to Squadron Leader Brian 
for this very informative evening. 


The first item of the evening and a very important one 
was the Christmas dinner in the hall. As we sat by candle- 
light the jesters entered, carrying the traditional boar's 
head and yule log. In the gallery stood the choir, candles 
in hand, singing Christmas carols. The Christmas address 
was read, and then the meal began. Roast turkey, plum 
pudding, candies and nuts filled the menu, and our stomachs. 
After dinner we moved to the transformed gym. To start 
the evening's entertainment there was the play "Box and 
Cox," capably directed by Mr. Gordon. Ketchum as a tight- 
fisted landlady was trying to get double rent from her room 
by renting it in the daytime to Box, and at night to Cox, 


who were portrayed very ably by McNairn and FitzGerald 

The French play which came next was Mr. Bishop's 
adaptation of the "Due de Beaufort." The Duke, played by 
Steinmetz, is aided in escaping from Gumey, the prison 
guard, by the clever use of Binnie, an accomplice of the Due, 
and supposedly a guard. The highlight of the play was 
when the Duke and his accomplice lowered themselves from 
the top of the prison wall (the rafters of the gym) to the 
ground (the gym floor) . Mr. Bishop very skilfully directed 
the play and produced a polished performance. Our sincerest 
congratulations and thanks go to Miss Wilkin for the ex- 
cellent costumes which she made. 

Last on the programme came the Junior School Pan- 
tomime, produced and directed by Mr. Burns and Mrs. 
Spencer. The theme was "The Night Before Christmas," 
and was a varied routine of songs, tap dancing and a dis- 
play of wonderful scenery. The entire J.S. participated in 
one way or another and the S.S. Glee Club introduced the 
production by their rendition of "Night Before Christmas 
Eve." The over-all effect of the pantomime showed the hours 
of preparation put into it by all concerned and was a very 
commendable performance. The final production of a play 
does not always indicate the credit that is due to the people 
who work behind the scenes to make it such a success. 

Our thanks go to Mr. Bishop and his stage hands, not 
only for the excellent and colourful scenery, but also for 
the quickness with which the sets were changed. The 
costume and make-up departments also produced the at- 
mosphere which helped make this evening the great success 
it was. 


On Saturday night, February 4, a new form of enter- 
tainment was introduced to the School. It was a fair, held 
in the gymnasium amid music and all the colour and 


spectacle of the best circus midways. The object was to 
raise money for the Pat Moss summer camp for under- 
privileged boys. There were about twenty booths in all, 
presenting a vast variety of games of chance and skill, as 
well as a hot dog and beverage stand. One of the most 
novel games was sliding a brass ring along a rod, where a 
bell rang if the two came in contact. Although it was tried 
200 times no one had a steady enough hand to get the ring 
to the end. Other games included horse racing, throwing 
pennies on a plate and liars' dice. The Roulette Wheel 
attracted many players, including one Scotch member of the 
staff, Mr. "Harry" McLeod who walked off with five dollars. 
All the Masters participated freely in all games adding to 
the fun and funds. In spite of all losses the "moss" backs 
rolled in and at the close of the fair about $200.00 had been 
extracted from the School's pockets. A great deal of credit 
should be given to George McCullagh for his work on the 
entertainment committee, the Pat -Moss Club and everyone 
in the School who had a hand in starting what will probably 
become a traditional event. 


The School has adopted a new sweatercoat which every- 
one is allowed to wear. It is black with maroon trim and 
has prove very popular. Since it is not a team coat, there 
are to be no numbers, but it is hoped that there will be a 
T.C.S. monogram to put on the left side. Mr. Batt's sales 
have doubled since the coats have been allowed in study 
and the "pipers" have found they are just the thing for 
their daily "fill." 


The Chapel Psalters have recently been rebound in red 
leather covers with a gold School Crest embossed on the 
front. They have added a great deal to the general appear- 
ance of the Chapel. 



The divers are having a great time with their new 
fibreglass diving board. It has been mounted on a special 
new stand and the top is covered with emery paper. Since 
it cost $400, it is hoped and expected that it will last a good 
deal longer than the previous wooden boards which had 
to be replaced at frequent intervals. 


On Tuesday, February 14, the annual Pancake Toss 
was held in the Gym. Tada, the School cook, presented the 
five-pound putty pancake to Squadron Leader Batt, who 
tossed it over the rope. A representative from each form 
lined up across the Gym, and the pancake was tossed over 
their heads and onto the floor. A wild scramble ensued as 
each boy, cheered on by his classmates, tried to obtain the 
most putty for his form. After three minutes, the whistle 
blew to stop the wild melee. John Arbuthnott of VIB 
emerged the winner with a piece weighing over a pound. 
Ian Binnie of VA was second. These boys received six and 
four dollars respectively. The award was presented by Mrs. 
P. H. Lewis, later being shared with classmates at the Tuck 
Shop. Other competitors were Dunlap (Prefects), Robb 
(6A), Thompson (6M), Sherwood (5B), Kennish (Upper 
Fourth 1), Scott (Upper Fourth 2), Ellis (Lower Fourth), 
Hamer (3A), Mockridge i (3B). 


When Mr. C. Scott left the School last Jime, the wood- 
work shop lost its efficient and enthusiastic supervisor. Mr. 
Gordon, however, has taken over control and has introduced 
a new and effective system. The executives at the present 
time are Bonnycastle as President and Brookes as Treasurer. 
Six full members were appointed and these people are re- 
sponsible for the shop's proper use and care. With the 


permission of a full member, the associate members, num- 
bering from about fifteen to twenty, are allowed to use the 
shop. The benches and tools have been rearranged and a 
new drill press and sander have been added along with a 
jig saw and other small tools. Many useful articles are being 
made under the new management who keep the shop well 
organized and are concerned with the quality of the products. 
This term, a competition has been proposed, involving the 
use of every machine in the shop, and the contestants will 
all make one prescribed article and one optional piece of 


In the elections held before Christmas for this year's 
executive of the Senior Debating Society, Meighen was 
chosen as president, Campbell as vice-president and Dunlap 
as secretary. The regular weekly meetings have only just 
started since Christmas under Mr. Dale's careful guidance 
and they seem to be progressing most admirably. To 
encourage proper conduct in public speaking, Mr. Dale gives 
hints on speaking at each meeting which are followed by 
pepper pots and impromptu debates. 

The first inter-school debate, in which it was "Resolved 
that Russia's recent policy for peace is sincere," was held 
at Ridley College on Friday, November 11. Campbell, 
Meighen, and Dunlap, the T.C.S. opposition representatives, 
were kindly driven to Ridley for the overnight visit by Mr. 
Gordon whose generosity is greatly appreciated. The Ridley 
Government group won with a small margin, but from all 
accounts the debate was a success. After being hospitably 
looked after by the Ridleyites and having spent the night 
in their new hospital, the T.C.S. team returned to the School. 

In the most recent debate against U.C.C. held here at 
T.C.S., the School representatives, FitzGerald, Gilbert, and 
Turnbull, supported the Opposition. The topic was "Resolved 
that the Press of the U.S. and Canada are out for their own 


gain, rather than for the welfare of the public." The Govern- 
ment of D. Martin, R. Martin, and L. Kerslake from Upper 
Canada College was defeated. 

We wish the debating teams the best of luck and hope 
they retain the Fulford Cup which we jointly won with 
S.A.C. last year. 


This year, under the able management of Mr. Brown, 
the Junior Debating Society for the third and fourth forms 
was revived to activity once again. The first meeting, held 
on January 16, was of twofold importance. First of all an 
election for the executive was held in which Shier became 
president, J. D. Smith and Stockwood became joint secre- 
taries, and Baxter was chosen as counsellor. Mr. Brown 
also gave a humorous but very educational talk on the "Art 
of Public Speaking" which will be of great assistance to 
future speakers. The debates, with two speakers for each 
side, are held during the last half of study on Friday nights 
in a classroom. All members are encouraged to speak at 
least once during the year and the debates will be judged 
by Mr. Brown and perhaps a representative from the Senior 
Debating Society. Two discussions have been held so far. 
The first, "Resolved that Hockey is a Better Sport than 
Football," resulted in a victory for the affirmative speakers 
Stephenson and Wood. The second debate "Resolved that 
the New Boy System is a Benefit to the School" was judged 
by Campbell and again resulted in an affirmative victory 
under Bowen and Scott who defeated Hyland and Dick. 

We wish this group great success and we are certain 
that they will receive enthusiastic support and invaluable 
training. ^ ^ I ^ \ 



Again this year, under the supervision of Mr. Lewis, 
the Photographic Society is off to a good start. Ham has 
been chosen president and the repairs to the plumbing in 
the darkroom which are now completed have made work 
much easier for the members. Mr. Lewis has willingly offer- 
ed to begin a course for those interested in learning the 
fundamentals of a camera, techniques in developing and 
printing pictures, and the use of the Dark Room. A com- 
petition, in which the best entry is chosen, is coming up soon 
and is confined to members. The better pictures will be 
exhibited in a classroom on Inspection Day. Already many 
good Record pictures have been contributed by members as 
a result of the skill in the club and the efficiency in the use 
and care of the equipment in the Dark Room. 


The Electronics Club, a new club in the School, has 
already made a successful start under iMr. Landry's control. 
The group of fourteen members meets every Wednesday for 
an hour to hear lectures and to discuss the fundamentals 
of electronics. The boys have a fully equipped radio room 
in the classroom block and many have started on a kit 
building programme of simple radios to obtain a basic under- 
standing of radio electronics. Before the end of the year, 
the members are hoping to build amplifiers and other radio 
components for use in the Sixth Form Physics course. 
Eventually, the boys, having grasped the rudiments of radio 
and electronics, will be able to teach new members wishing 
to join next year. Best wishes go to this infant organization 
and thanks to Mr. Landry for his invaluable help. 



This year the total membership of the Dramatic Society 
is fifteen after six new members, following auditions, were 
chosen. At one meeting during term Society members saw 
a film "On Stage" illustrating correct production and pro- 
cedure. The hard work during practices for the play "Box 
and Cox" with Mr. Gordon ably directing produced an ex- 
cellent performance at the Christmas Entertainment. Mc- 
Nairn, FitzGerald and Ketchum skilfully filled the roles of 
Mr. Box, Mr. Cox and the housekeeper respectively. Prac- 
tices for a ten cast Easter play, "Journey's End," are well 
under way with Mr. Scott directing. For those not taking 
part in this play a short one act play is proposed for a 
future entertainment night in the assembly room. 


Beginning November 13, a series of preliminary meet- 
ings was held by the returning members to elect new mem- 
bers, and fifteen were finally admitted, swelling the group's 
membership to a maximum of twenty. With Mac Campbell 
as President, Bruce Wells, Vice-President, and Ian Binnie, 
Treasurer and Dr. Ketchum, Honorary President, the first 
meeting was held on November 20. The humorous preamble 
inherited from the founders of the club was then read by 
Mr. Hodgetts. It is stated herein that the basic purpose 
of the club is by study, analytical thinking and group discus- 
sion to arrive at unprejudiced truths concerning the political 
and economic aspects of Canada and the world, and to 
develop a broader knowledge of current world events. Dur- 
ing the remaining meetings up to Christmas suggestions 
for this year's topics were introduced. Introduced were such 
suggestions as a study of major world problems fused into 
a World government; an ideal man and examples in history 
of such a man; African problems; a study of Russia and 
Western world affairs; and labour unions in Canada and 
U.S.A. However, the topic chosen was "any man — his social 


and political influence." After many suggestions the fol- 
lowing men are going to be studied; Smuts, Gandhi, Ben 
Gurion, Mao Tze Tung, Hitler, F. D. Roosevelt, Mackenzie 
King, Churchill, Robert Schumann, Carnegie, Butler, Lenin, 
Plato, Huxley, Einstein, Oppenheimer, and Massey. 

A subsidiary activity of the club is for members to give 
a weekly periscoped news report in the Hall. The first re- 
port was successfully presented by Campbell. 


The French Club under the inspiration of Mr. Bishop 
with Meighen, President, and Campbell, Vice-President, has 
had a most varied and successful year. At one of the earlier 
meeting Mrs. Gordon who had just previously taught in 
France for over a year gave a most interesting "causerie" 
in French detailing her experiences in France and in French 
schools. After this most informing talk questions were asked 
about schools in France. During the meetings now held 
every Friday evening in the Guild room various games like 
"twenty questions" and "what is your line," are played with 
the idea of widening knowledge of French vocabulary and 
improving oral French. The group also saw a movie show- 
ing France in four seasons of the year, explained by a French 

The French table, an of f -shoot of the club itself, gathers 
at every Friday dinner to converse in French. Enjoyed by 
all, this is a most successful weekly innovation. 

The highlight of this year's programme was the con- 
tribution to the Christmas entertainment by the French 
Club of the play "L'Evasion du Due de Beaufort" written 
by Alexander Dumas. Mr. Bishop, the most able director, 
who is to be credited for a great deal of work on this play 
and the stage-work, adapted it from the original. The actors 
were clothed in the gay 17th century costumes — all of them 
made by Miss Wilkins. The main roles were filled by Nick 
Steinmetz as le Due, Chris Gurney as La Ramee, and Ian 
Binnie as Grimaud. In addition there were the important 


pastry cook and guards to create the proper atmosphere. 
The highlight of the play came when le Due and Grimaud 
made a fast getaway from the prison by sliding down a 
rope from the rafters above. The hard work in preparation 
was certainly repaid as it was one of the best plays ever 
produced at Christmas. Special "Cercle Frangais" crests 
were awarded to the leading characters in the play in recog- 
nition for their hard work and excellent results. 


After a delay of four years, the colour constitution, 
revised in 1951-52, was passed by the Colour Committee in 
November. There are many reasons for such major changes 
as that sweater coats may be adorned only by a "T.C.S." 
and first team colours may be awarded to any sport at the 
discretion of the colour committee. Fundamentally, it was 
felt the sweater coats were becoming too ornamented and 
that sports change in popularity and degree of proficiency 
over the years. It was again emphasized that colours are 
only additional awards to the pleasure of playing on a team. 

Here, then, is the complete constitution passed after 
hours of laborious meetings, both in 1951 and 1955. 

COMMITTEE as Revised 1955

the form of a full first colour and the recipient shall be 
entitled to the privileges of a full first colour as defined 
in Section II, paragraph 1.) 

2. The award shall be made on the basis of "consistent dis-

and are not retroactive. 




Bishop Brent 

On April 9, 1862, Charles Henry Brent was born in the 
little country town of Newcastle, not far from here. His 
father, the rector of the local parish church, could never 
have dreamt that his third child would attain international 
fame in working for the Christian Church. 

Charles received the best education possible for a New- 
castle boy. He attended the local public and high schools, 
then in 1880 he came to T.C.S. for a stay of just imder two 
years. He played for the rugby team and was a Prefect. 
Although very strict, he was well liked because of his fair- 
ness, generosity and broad-mindedness. After graduating 
he won a scholarship to Trinity College, Toronto, then re- 
turned to T.C.S. to teach for two years. In 1887 he was 
ordained a priest by Bishop Sweatman but did not work 
under him. He spent a short time in Buffalo, then moved to 
Boston where he lived with the Cowley Fathers, but after 
a dispute with his superiors, left them. He volunteered to 
join St. Stephen's Mission in the Boston slums. Here he 
spent ten years associating with the people and doing all 
that he could to help them. He commanded their love and 
respect and they were deeply sorry when he left them for 
the Philippines. He was consecrated Bishop of the Mission 
by Bishop Doane at Albany and in May 1902 left for that 


Pacific archipelago. He spent some time en route in Europe, 
and finally arrived at his destination in August. 

His open mind and great understanding soon became 
apparent, for he did not expect the Filipinos to throw aside 
their fathers' faith because of a sermon they did not under- 
stand. Moreover, his attitude toward other religions was 
friendly whereas other missionaries often regarded them as 
devilish. His immediate success with Americans in Manila 
can perhaps be best described by a conversation with 
Governor Taft one Sunday. Bishop Brent knew him well, 
having made his trip to the Philippines with him, and there- 
fore was not hesitant in remarking that he had not seen 
the Governor in church very often. "Do you really want 
to know why I don't go to your church?" replied Taft. "You 
haven't a chair that will hold me." Incidentally, the Bishop 
had a special chair set aside for him in the crowded chiu-ch 
and thereafter Governor Taft attended services. 

Soon after preliminary work had been done, he set 
about travelling around the islands. He found some Roman 
Catholic stations, but did not interfere with them in any 
way. Difficulties were numerous, language being a prin- 
cipal barrier. Once at a Communion service for natives 
in their own tongue, confusion arose due to the similarity 
of the words "pusor" meaning cat and "puso" meaning 
heart. This caused the natives to be urged to "lift up their 
cats." There was no response and the situation was relieved 
when the mistake was disclosed. 

While in the Philippines he received several offers to 
return to the United States. However, he declined until 1917 
when he came back only to be sent to France as Senior 
Headquarters Chaplain. From 1919 to 1929 he was Bishop 
of Western New York. It was he who took the leading part 
in persuading the churches to work together, the first step 
in the movement which has recently resulted in the 
World Council of Churches. He not only worked hard in 
ecclesiastical duties, but also fought forcibly for the sup- 
pression of the opium traffic. On March 27, 1929, he died 


in Lausanne on his way to the -Mediterranean. Thus, the 
world lost a great Christian leader. His relationship with 
this school was close, for he took a deep interest in it, not 
only as a pupil and master, but later on in his life. He 
preached the Speech Day sermon in 1919 and again in 1924. 
His 1919 visit was a sign of his devotion to the School, for 
he had arrived in New York only the day before after com- 
pleting his overseas duties. His death caused great sorrow 
and he will always be remembered for his understanding, his 
clarity of thought and his dedication to the teaching of 
Christian ideals. 



Once again, station TDPY brings you your up to the 
minute local news roundup. And by local we mean just 
that, as you'll see. In fact, just next door to our studio two 
young lads, "NIP" and John by name, seem to have been 
making frequent trips to the local infirmary. It is believed 
that they are suffering from FAKITIS, a milder form of 

A young lad across the "HALL" doesn't find 
"ARIZONA" to his liking. It seems the climate in "IRE- 
LAND" is more suited to his tastes. 

Also, a very modern new drugstore has opened in the 
vicinity. The peculiar thing about it is that the juke box 
only plays one piece entitled "MOSTLY MARTHA." 

On the floor above us a group of very active juvenile 
delinquents seem to have been rewarded handsomely for 
the time they have put into the construction of a device 


which local authorities have conveniently dubbed "YE 
OLDE SNATCHER." The members of the gang are also 
having a hard time suppressing the antics of their leader, 
who is an ardent Lone Ranger fan. Their treatment for 
the ailment, peculiar as it sounds, makes use of a lock and 
"BELT." Incidently, many of these fellows are active (and 
prospective) basketballers on the side and they are having 
a great deal of trouble in getting rid of "FOUST," a great 
name in basketball. 

Famous "DEAD EYE" Bart has only received "DEAR 
JOHNS" as a result of his "PROPOSALS." 

Now, the stockmarket. The prominent Mr, Robert 
Smithers seems to have "hit the jackpot" in the stock mar- 
ket this time. Only a few days ago he received a check 
totalling the fabulous sum of "20c." in dividends from 
Du Pont of Canada. This transaction was so big the Mon- 
treal Trust was called in to handle it. 

The local health board is beginning to ponder the health 
of a couple of alponists in the neighbourhood. A witness 
claims that he overheard them discussing the various types 
of ice cream cones and on passing them one mumbled 
"TWO SCOOPS IF YOU PLEASE." As well, it is reported 
that one of them, from Gananoque, sent out fourteen valen- 
tines, one each day, all to the same girl. It is believed the 
Federal Department of Health will look into their cases. 

The Parliament Hill Rifle Club has at last qualified for 
D.C.R.A. competition for the club members are now "AIM- 

And to wind up this news report, a member of our own 
crew here in the studio has been promoted to one of station 
TDPY's privileged few. Congratulations Robbie. 

This is station TDPY signing off. 



I s'pose you know dat dere is wan beeg spirit at Trinity 

College School, 
EUe dort dans la maison de Bethune (Bimbey, she is no 

'Course her name is de Lady of Bethune, she is wan fine keed, 
She always make sure dat dose han'some boys, det live up 

to de Bethune creed. 

She is won himnert'n forty-four, she died eighty years ago — 
But she's been 'round de house all dis time, make sure tings

De fellas (brain'n athlete all in one) dere hair wit Brylcream 

Dere clothes alway clean, dere shoes dey gleam, (diable! 

dis gal's real gone.) 

Mon dieu but she is a worker, it hurts of me to tink, 

De way she drives dis old house along, while d'odder one 

she sink! 
Cependant, c'est la vie — 'do she lak to help dem too — 
For house in such beeg mess as Brent, dere is noting she 

can do. 

Mais, sapre tonnerre! Dat old Bethune house, she's goin 

lak some beeg train 
Her athletes are de best dere is, dey work crazee'n no heed 

de pain 
Everyone, dey work hard dans la salle de classe, et beaucoup 

d'autre chose 
Et pourquoi dey doin dat you say? Well for dat gran* old 

girl (We all does-even me!) 

'Course de ole house, she's a sight dese days — dem black 

sweater coats 'n such 
An dat sweet old fella wit dem oiled shoes — he sure is no 

help much! 


But de grand old lady, she not too worried — she's seen it all 

(and more!) 
She knows all dem fightin' Bethune boys will win such fame 

as no exist before. 

So ma frens, put on dat great old tie, de one wit de double 

Dere is (in dis world) noting better, she signify a Bethune 

And de boys de Bethune are de greatest, dat, no one can 

So, mes amis, to dat spirit of Lady Bethune, wit your 

glasses raised on high! 


Come on, gang, are we spiritless? 

For one must have spirit to do his best. 

We've got the potential, we've got the might. 

So let's get in there and give them a fight. 

A Spirit House is for what we aim 

Now we'll all get behind it to make good our claim. 

To build our House three flats are required: 

Foundation, the cast, and some clay that's inspired. 

The Foundation's the place where most fame rests. 

But we know it's worth nothing without the rest. 

The rest is the part that's up to you 

And depends on your actions and what you do. 

Determination must persist throughout. 

You know that it's needed, without a doubt. 

Forget the defeats, they're all in the game 

To win, to lose, it's all the same. 

Make the top you're goal and don't give way 

Because I know you'll get there anyway. 

We've got to unite to do our best. 

With all of us fighting, we'll meet the test. 

On the field, in the House, or wherever you are, 


Let honesty and truth be your guiding star. 

Desire must be held above the rest, 

To see, to feel, and to be blest. 

Thus the plans of our House are revealed 

Now strive to seek, to find and not to yield, 

So get out and fight, and fight to win. 

Keeping good old Brent the way it's been. 

The GRAPE VINE comes to you this term. 
To talk of people like WORM and HERM, 
So if you sit back in your chair. 
We'll tell you stories, some foul . . . some fair. 

The alarm clocks made quite a hit with Mac, 
He BOMBED around in the 102 shack, 
While FITZ and GARTH are at ends with the DUN, 
There's one whose in BONDS, his name is TON. 

BLANE, he sails on a CHINA CLIPPER, 
"BUT SIR," says ITCH, and JACK gets sicker, 
BRUCE, he went up to the city of PORT ARTHUR, 


The BRENT house CATS 

Have turned to BATS; 
And SPACE CADET is worried. 
They fly so low, and fast, and far, 
His little smile is scurried. 

GOBBLE NOBB has unpacked his arsenal and, who 
knows, he may load lAN'S waterbottle with a BAZOOKIA 
shell. The squash team SHAGged their way south of the 
border and then SKIDaddled out of Boston. Up east, in 
St. Sauveur, a group of skiers (?) dampened themselves 
in Nymarks annex. Speaking of those who enjoy travelling, 
TERRY wants to punch cows on the ORME ranch, CY pre- 
fers to travel the WEST, and RUSTY is going to go north, 
where he will find the ANNswer. 

The PAT MOSS SKI CLUB had a fair, 
EEEE - 1, EEEE - 1, 0; 

And at this brawl, GEORGE passed the hat, 
EEEE - 1, EEEE - 1, 0; 

With a horse-race here, and a dice game there. 

And BULLET grabbing the take, it was a great affair. 

RIGHT NOW! a couple more couplets! 

Around this place, we'd like some snow. 

So JOHNNY, ANGUS, and ART could go . . . skiing. 

Al, BERT and ADAM, the HI-FI boys. 
Are producing a lot of tuneful noise! 

ROACH and PROC have been sleeping late, 
But while sleeping in class, they look so sedate. 

And now it's time for us to go, 
We'd like to linger on, although — 
Seeing the vine, someday must stop, 
We'll end right now, and close up shop.

It was a clear day and the sun was beating down on 
Ogtak's back. It had been a pleasing day for him because 
he had killed a Slinkloos for his one-meal-a-day diet and 
he was feeling quite proud of himself. This pride, however, 
was shortlived, for, as he was plodding past a large boulder 
there appeared on the other side Sinklap, his cousin. Sink- 
lap greeted Ogtak merrily with a grunt and the stamp of 
the foot and then to Ogtak's surprise hauled up alongside 
him a woman beast. Sinklap explained in a series of modi- 
fied grunts that he had been hunting and had come upon 
the woman beasts while chasing a Kalstook. He also said 
that he had heard that woman beasts were the latest fashion 
and that they had discovered a method of preparing prey 
so that it was far more agreeable to the palate. Also he 
said they were noted for their helpfulness, once trained, 
in himting and in making their masters comfortable at the 
close of the day. With that, Sinklap continued merrily on 
his way, dragging the woman beast by her hair, while Ogtak 
looked longingly after them. From then on Ogtak gave up 
everything in his search for a woman beast. He no longer 
thrilled at the thought of hunting Slinkloos with his club 
nor did he feel the comfort of the warm sun. 

One day as he was lying in his cave bemoaning his 
misfortune in grunts, he happened to look up towards the 
sky and there, in a tree, eating chestnuts, he spied a woman 


beast. With a snort of joy he bounded over to the tree and 
gave it four mighty heaves. As a result the woman beast 
landed right in his arms. He carried her triumphantly into 
the cave and laid her down at the end for further use. Some 
days later, however, poor Ogtak was again bemoaning his 
misfortunes in modified grunts at the door of his cave. 
This time he was aware of the fact that the woman beast 
was the curse of mankind. He had lost his freedom. His 
freedom to act at will, his freedom of speech, and of the 
right to be master of his own cave. He could no longer 
play Krap or Kroper with his cousin Sinklap and his nephew 
Platsop. He could not go out and howl and stare and twiddle 
at the moon at night. He was in fact afraid to even move 
for fear that a fresh tantrum would start and the woman 
beast would foam at the mouth. The woman beast had 
become all too powerful. 

This unfortunately has been the pattern of history 
ever since and all because one insignificant caveman named 
Ogtak made the now familiar, but fatal mistake. 

—p. K. H. Taylor, Upper IV B. 


No one is a self-contained unit separated from his 
fellow man. There are people who give you the impression 
that they control their own destiny and will achieve their 
goals without the help of anyone save the great god "I." 
They don't need the help of others because they stand alone 
and like it. They maintain that this is their destiny. 

This argument is false and contrary to all the laws of 
nature and the universe. It is a presumption that denies 
the very purpose of life. 

Einstein stated that matter and energy were the same 
thing. It has since been proved that everything is made up 
of energy, and that all things are merely different manifesta- 
tions of this. Has it not been proved that all things are 
composed of atoms and that atoms are different forms of 


electrons and protons? Hence everything seems to have 
come from this energy, and therefore must go back to it, 
having put something into it to further its cause, what ever 
it may be, or done nothing to further this cause. This is 
commonly called doing good or evil. Now during the trans- 
formation of this energy it is, here on earth, divided into 
various categories. By looking at one of these categories 
we may catch a glimpse of its purpose or goal. We must 
not look beyond this goal till it is reached, for like the 
horizon, we will be imable to see beyond. 

Since we are discussing man let us look at this category. 
We all know that the first living things were protozoa. 
These were one celled animals that, through combining with 
other cells and continuing this multiplication geometrically, 
eventually arriving at a very complicated combination of 
cells, the human being. 

In its early stages the human also multiplied. He found 
another type of his own species and discovered that though 
he had to give up little of his absolute freedom he gained 
security and companionship. This is the basis of co-opera- 
tion; you both give something and receive together benefits 
which are multiplied. The same process went on, through 
better and better knowledge of others, families joined to 
form tribes, tribes joined to form towns, towns joined to 
form cities, cities joined to form states, states joined to 
form countries. It stands to reason that as time progresses 
and we become better acquainted with our neighbours 
through better communications (such things as jet planes 
and television) we will eventually have a united world. 

Now what is the basic ingredient of this evolution not 
only in human groups but in all other spheres of our knowl- 
edge? Is it not that each previous component had to give 
up some of its former freedom to gain something greater? 
Is that not what happens when we accept a government? 
We give it some of our former freedom in order that it may 
give us security and keep things organized so that we may 
progress and be happy. This act is common to all changes 
for the better. 



This is the basis of our existence, it is the law of 
nature. A single man cannot go against it if he is to fulfill 
his destiny and hence reach contentment. No one must cut 
himself off from the shore.

The atmosphere is one plenitude of invisible currents, 
things unforseen, sounds often heard, noises with no ex- 
planation. What is it that makes man so afraid of the dark 
even in his own friendly house? What is it that has made 
man believe in the supernatural? There is no explanation, 
no solution. Wait and bide your time and perhaps that 
strange sense of sight and sound will come to you. 

I was bom in an atmosphere thick with them; there- 
for I am biased in their favours. They appeared to me. You 
may laugh long and loud and say I am a liar, but perhaps 
one day when you least expect it, you will change your mind. 

It is not a very old house, for antiquity in architecture 
is vast in Europe. It is not a very big house by European 
standards, but on this continent it would be called a palace. 
It was finished in 1812, a Georgian house, with rows of 
windows and a battlemented parapet; indeed the whole 
house is Gothic in flavour. It has its own distinctive at- 
mosphere and feeling. Inside it is light and airy with plaster 
ceilings richly ornamented and portraits in gilt frames 
mingling favourably with crimson curtains. This builds up 
its atmosphere of mellow pleasantness. It is essentially not 
a creepy place. 

The light was leaving the sky outside the Drawing 
Room windows. The low hum of conversation intermingled 
with the sound of a glass clinking on a decanter ; these were 
the only sounds. Tall sash windows were open, and the scent 
of the June night filled the room. The butler came in and 
annoimced dinner and a general move to the dining room 
across the hall started. That was when I saw it. It glided 
along the walk outside, shrouded, pale, hooded, no flesh 
showing and fairly distinct. It went past two of the windows 
but not the third. None of the dogs would go out that night ; 
they whimpered and steadily refused. It has often been seen 
since, walking along the path, not always in the same form, 
so perhaps there are two ; the other seems to be male, having 


top boots; but I have never seen him. Who they are, no 
one knows, for unhke many ghost stories there is no legend 
about them. Then there is the door knocker, that knocks 
on the front door for three nights running, three times 
each night. There is never anyone there, just the sound of 
the river over the park or a sea-bird crying in the stillness. 
A member of the family always dies after it is heard. I have 
only heard it once, and that was before my father's death. 
They are fixtures, silent for years sometimes, not 
troublesome like Poltergeists or dangerous like elementals. 
Sometimes they produce a feeling of foreboding, a sense of 
the obscure. It is a component part of the atmosphere in 
Europe. Rooms seem more full, full of a feeling indescrib- 
able. This sense does not seem to have infiltrated to this 
continent. That feeling beyond the horizon is here an 
empty space, but why? It is inexplicable, but then so are

It was Sunday night and the stars shone down on the 
little settlement in the jungle with serene benevolence. A 
soft warm breeze playfully twirled some dry leaves on the 
market place, swept along a verandah caressing a young 
couple and silently vanished into the jungle from whence 
it had come. It was the young doctor and his wife, the only 
white people in this remote Indian village, who were quietly 
gazing at the stars twinkling in the cold cloudless sky above. 
Only six hours ago these same stars had shone in the same 
way on their home, now so far away. He sighed heavily, 
they both got up and walked arm in arm towards the market 

It was nearly a year now that they, together with their 
two young sons, had been sent to this small village where 
he was to be the only doctor. They felt lonely, for the 
Indian's ignorance and illiteracy did not afford any common 


topics for conversation. Nor were these especially interested 
in establishing a closer relationship with the doctor than 
their visits to his office to cure a fever or the results of a 
snake bite. The fact that he cured and relieved pain caused 
him to be regarded by some as a god or magician. Life here 
and among these people was not easy, yet this couple carried 
on, modeling their life as closely as was possible to what 
they were used to and trying to hide from themselves the 
bare reality of a dismal situation. But even that was hard, 
for the backward and isolated primitiveness was harsh and 
forced itself upon them. It was depressing to know that to 
reach the nearest settlement a three weeks' canoe trip 
through uncertain regions was necessary. The food was 
very inadequate, especially for the children. Milk was always 
lacking, flour was non-existent. The standard diet was 
yuca, fish, bananas and a kind of bread made from farina. 
Other things such as meat or different fruits were seldom 
available. The general lack of everything usually considered 
normal in the outside world, together with the constant 
stifling heat, was a great trial for this family. They had not 
come here of their own choice but of necessity. The persecu- 
tions of a discriminating and despotic faction overseas had 
forced them to flee suddenly and to come to this forgotten 
corner of the earth. 

The couple now reached the market-place and turned 
toward the Comisaria from which wild musical rhythms 
could be heard, struggling to make themselves heard above 
the monotonous rumbling of a diesel generator. Once in a 
while these two lonely people would come here to the Com- 
isaria, which possessed the only source of electricity and 
the only radio, to hear this crude expression in music. As 
they entered the room where the radio was, a now familiar 
picture presented itself to them. Sitting on benches situated 
on three sides of the shabby room were about a dozen 
half-naked copper faced Indians with unruly black hair. 
They were all listening to the radio which was on the 
far side of the room, and sweating in the stagnant heat. 


They moved closer together and the two new-comers sat 
down. The beat of mambo drums got faint, for reception 
was bad, and an Indian switched from station to station, 
seeking sound. Suddenly, like the sharp whack of a hammer 
a station came in clear, full and strong, and the sweet 
melodius strains of Beethoven's Concerto in D flooded the 
room. Like a cocked spring released by a trigger the couple 
jerked up ; he flashed across the room turning off the radio 
and sad tears swelled in her eyes. The Indians gazed in 
astonishment and were bewildered as the two people, just 
come, left the room again. 

Walking slowly home, they were suddenly tired, weary 
and disheartened.

Spare time does not mean just free time. It means time 
of your own to read, think, relax or pursue a hobby. If it 
is conserved it is worth much more. Spare time is valuable 
time and should not be wasted. If you conserve it by arrang- 
ing a close schedule to live by, you will find that you will 
be well repaid. 

There are many ways of using your spare time but all 
fall under two general headings. These headings are 
"wasted" and "useful." Your leisure hours are so often 
completely wasted that you do not benefit from them. The 
spare hours of your day spent on drivel such as comic 
books and trash magazines will do you no good at all. How- 
ever, there are many ways of using your time usefully for 
enjoyment and relaxation. Wasted time may pass quickly 
but after it has gone there is nothing to show for it. 

A great deal of our time is taken up by exercise which 
often takes the form of sports. Exercise is essential for a 
healthy life. Even if you are not a good athlete, you can 
still enjoy sports. For sports do not only provide fun and 
entertainment but also keep us in good condition. 


One of the best forms of exercise is a long, solitary 
walk in the country. Such a walk allows plenty of time for 
meditation and the clean fresh coimtry air is wonderfully 

Still another spare time occupation is reading. Reading 
transports you into a completely different world. Perhaps 
it is a wonderful world of ancient times or the setting may 
be a more modern scene. Whatever type of book it is, if 
it's a good book the reading will enhance your knowledge 
of things outside your own private little world. 

Complete relaxation is not a waste but very well spent 
time. For instance a quiet nap helps to keep you in good 
health and good humour. Music is a great aid in relaxing. 

A large part of our spare time is taken up in hobbies. 
Almost everyone has a particular hobby which they are 
interested in. A hobby need not be expensive but it should 
be completely absorbing. Whether your hobby is art, stamps, 
trading, model aeroplanes or one of the many others, it will 
prove an excellent use of spare time. 

Besides these, there are many other ways to use and 
enjoy spare time so it is not to be passed off as waste time, 
but should be used to your advantage.

When one ponders a moment and thinks back a few 
himdred years to the days when the pioneers of Canada 
were exploring the vast inner regions of the new world, it 
is difficult to imagine how they survived a life without the 
modern conveniences of today. Even such a relatively short 
time ago as eighty years, when our great grandfathers 
found peace in a new young nation, without the communica- 
tion facilities and luxuries of today's new world, we can 
only wonder as to the life they led. It seems odd to picture 
ourselves one hundred years ago, for we have accepted the 
changing world without a backward glance at the men and 


women responsible for our new and exciting environment. 
We are living in an unprecedented, stirring era, in which 
the world of scientific research may eventually, and prob- 
ably will, result in our corruption. But, are we happy? Is 
the life of man any happier as a result of this changing 
world ? 

Yes, the outside appearance of the world has undergone 
a vigorous change which has undoubtedly deeply affected 
the hackneyed life of man. In the field of communication 
the world has surged forward into air travel and recent 
scientific exploitation of space brings hope for future travel 
and life in the planetary orbits beyond. Luxurious appli- 
ances such as the radio and more recently television have 
enabled us to live in a richer and more colourful economy. 
With the splitting of the atom, not too long ago, more 
deadly implements of deadly destruction have been con- 

Let us take a second glance at this supposedly wonder- 
ful modern era of the world. The most significant, critical, 
and essential characteristics of mankind such as war, hatred, 
fear, and unhappiness have not changed and perhaps, un- 
fortunately, never will. If one delves deeply inside the minds 
and thoughts of men and women of this modern world he 
will see that they have not changed. People are still per- 
turbed, and perhaps more so, by their abstract ideals of 
life and the modern inventions and luxuries which are mere 
trivialities compared to these controversies. The people of 
the world have not changed. The world is still a den of 
disarrayed, dissatisfied people. The world today, although 
changed in outward appearance, is no happier than it was 
hundreds of years ago and will not grow happier as long 
as man is plagued by war, fear and hate. Until we find 
solutions to obliterate these great problems and terminate 
the continual lust for power, the world cannot be considered 
a wonderful and peaceful domain. 

Where are the answers? What can be done to prevent 
this childish game of war which man so loves to play? The 


much sought answer is perhaps in education. If the world 
can be sufficiently educated to the fact that war and hatred 
merely repeat a futile cycle, leading only to corruption, the 
answer may be found. However, education as a solution 
is an absurdity, for less than fifty percent of the entire 
world population is literate. Perhaps the solution is in 
religion and maybe when the world finds complete faith in 
a spiritual sense a more docile world will supervene. Again, 
this too seems impossible, for a powerful, fast-rising, in- 
fluential political party is constantly spreading by violence 
a philosophy contrary to the Christian faith. 

Where are the answers? How will mankind achieve 
the solutions to the most fascinating, yet dangerous, 
problems of today's world? As yet the answers cannot be 
found and until they are, the world, although presenting a 
strong exterior, will remain internally, maybe eternally, 
full of war, hatred and fear.

If men were perfect and we had a unified world, would 
these conditions breed happiness? This is an extremely 
difficult question to answer or even to consider because you 
are dealing with a type of man which, in our estimation, 
the world has only viewed once and with a form of world 
government which man has never experienced. Again, you 
must define a perfect man and a unified world. 

Let us attempt to define a perfect man. To do this we 
must justify our prerequisites in one of many religious ways. 
For instance, a perfect man in the eyes of a Buddhist would 
undoubtedly not be considered a perfect man under Chris- 
tianity. Therefore, without becoming too involved in detail, 
I am going to be narrow-minded and only discuss this topic 
under my religion, Christianity. By our standards, the 
character of the individual is all important and this person 
must enjoy freedom. Such a person must live a humble 


worshipping life in unselfish service devoted to his fellow- 
men and must adhere stringently to the "Ten Command- 
ments." Obviously, such a life would be a most rewarding 
one, but a very formidable one to execute. 

In thinking of a unified world we, the people, really 
seek a peaceful world ; if men were perfect at the same time, 
a peaceful world would inevitably be produced. This state 
would be achieved because men would have the bargaining 
power, which they now lack — that is, the strength of char- 
acter to overcome greed, jealousy and pride in order that 
all might share in a just manner. The question, put before 
us is this: "Would men be happier in such a state?" I be- 
lieve the answer is "no" and I base my answer on the con- 
ception that if everything were perfected there would be 
no initiative to improve conditions or to pursue moderniza- 
tion because all these things would have been achieved. 
Since man is imperfect and the world is not unified, we have 
innumerable tasks to execute in improving conditions and 
such improvements or achievements, being successful, al- 
ways breed happiness. Man was, is, and probably always 
will be imperfect. Therefore, we must pass over our dreams 
of new worlds and reconcile ourselves to our position re- 
levant to life and do our part. 

Realizing all this, one runs up against another stumbling 
block. This block is created by such question as, "What is 
our part in life?", "Why is that our part?" and, "To what 
end are we travelling?" Such a discussion as this has been 
carried on for generations and the most logical conclusions, 
I believe, have been achieved by the Christian faith. A faith, 
any form of faith, is a necessity and it gives an individual 
the opportunity to make some comparisons between what 
they feel is right and wrong. The Christian faith shows us 
that it is our duty to live as closely to the Ten Command- 
ments as possible and to live unselfishly. This way of life 
has been given to us by God through men as part of His 
plan for us and this is why we should live such a life; that 
is, it is our part in His plan. The final question, "To what 


end are we travelling?" man has never been able to answer 
conclusively, although many have attempted. We have 
faith that there is something to follow this life and rather 
than worry about what form that may take, it is our sole 
duty to fulfil our lives as previously described and all the 
rest will come in time. This conception was very well summed 
up I thought by President Eisenhower in a Christmas 
address when he said: 

"If each of us in his own mind would dwell more upon 
the simple virtues — integrity, courage, self-confidence, an 
unshakeable belief in his Bible — would not some of our 
problems tend to simplify themselves? Would not we, after 
having done our best with them, be content to leave the 
rest with the Almighty? I think it is possible that a con- 
templation, a study, a belief in those simple virtues would 
help us mightily."

Only the slow scrape of the paddle along the gunwhale 
of the canoe and the shrill of the whippoorwill interrupted 
Nature's beautiful silence. The gentle slapping of the ripples 
against the bow added a syncopated counterpoint to Her 
song of tranquillity. Here and there the bass could be 
heard splashing for flies that hovered too closely to the 
shimmering surface of the water. Occasionally, one could 
see a glistening streak as a phantom fish reflected the bright 
moon's rays from beneath the surface. 

On the right lay a vast open stretch of Georgian Bay 
smiled upon by the radiant full moon which created a 
sparkling silver path to the hidden world beyond the horizon.

Above, the flat colour-tinged clouds drifted aimlessly

one noticed how the various layers of clouds formed a soft

Centuries ago, our forefathers saw this haven, as we see 
it today, inhaled the cool fresh air as we do and were cap-

spreads its tentacles farther and farther from the southern

We often talk lightly about it, but if one is to accom- 
plish anything in this life one must have an occupation of 
some sort. At times when we are tired and out of sorts we 
wish that we could lie down and forget everything. To eat 
and sleep for the rest of our lives, we think, would be bliss. 
Who is there among us who has not stared longingly at a 
dog, contentedly sleeping, oblivious to all that is going on, 
and thought to himself "wouldn't it be wonderful to be 
like Rover? He has no worries or responsibilities or hard- 
ships, save the odd bath, and can look forward to stealing 
away with a nice big bone from the roast that Mother is 
preparing for dinner." And who is there who has not at one 
time wished he were bathing in the sun on the warm sands 
of some remote South Pacific isle, its shore washed by the 
cool green waves? A place where he could fill himself with 
mangoes and bananas, and drink the sweet white milk of 
the coconut. Or who has not longed to have a magic lamp 
which, once rubbed, would produce a genie, capable of ful- 


filling his master's every wish, no matter what impos- 
sibilities or obstacles confronted him? 

We can wish, however, for many things for the sake 
of wishing, yet we shall not receive them. Nor can we 
enjoy the worriless existence of "Rover" or the palm tree 
paradise of the South Sea. Indeed, there has been but one 
Aladdin who has had the good fortune to come upon a magic 
lamp. We were built for work and accomplishment. We 
are made in such a way that we gain a feeling of satisfac- 
tion and pride from what we are doing and in what we have 
done, be it large or small. We all sow our seeds, as it were, 
like the farmer and reap the fruits of our labour, afterwards. 
The less men do, the lazier they seem to become and the 
more unsuccessful are their efforts. Consider the Romans, 
for example. The rulers and controllers of a vast empire, 
which was for years so efficient and so well supervised in 
all parts, that every man from the boldest of generals down 
to the lowest militia man worked to support it. But when 
the time came when its people grew soft and slack with 
drink and food, and began to do less for their country, the 
wheels and cogs of that mighty machine began to rust and 
crumble to pieces. 

All the emphasis today is put on doing things the easiest 
way in the shortest time. The less people have to do, and 
the less time they have to spend doing it, the happier they 
are. No longer does Mama spend endless hours weaving the 
family's clothes or churning the butter for meals, but in- 
stead she merely trips down to the "Super Market" and 
buys all that she needs. She no longer stands with her 
hands soaking in a sink, scrubbing the family's dirty dishes. 
The new automatic dishwasher takes care of them nicely. 
Every dish is placed in a rack, a button is pushed, and in 
half an hour, "presto," she can fill her cupboards with 
sparkling clean cups and saucers. Surely, though, putting 
away the dishes is a tedious task. Is there no machine 
which could accomplish that job as well? 


While mother is in the house calmly keeping the stove, 
dishwasher and Bendix in check the man of the household 
is outside proudly following his new power-driven lawn- 
mower over the grass, at the same time hoping that he will 
have no trouble with the engine. He thinks of the old 
lawn mower lying beneath a pile of clothes in the cellar, 
and of what a job it would be to oil and sharpen it, let alone 
to push it! 

They say that in the future we may walk very seldom, 
but will rely on transportation even from one room to an- 
other. We will scorn flatly the suggestion of walking across 
to the house next door or the nearest post box. We may 
even go so far as to give up the business of cultivating 
and preparing food for meals. A small pill, which would 
contain the vitamins and proteins necessary for a com- 
fortable existence would be downed hastily at breakfast 
time, noon time and dinner, and possibly a smaller pill would 
do for a midnight snack. Think of the time saved, for the 
maid, if such a person were needed, would no longer have 
to worry about the finger bowls. 

Who knows, someday "Rover" may be the one who is 
envying us. With machines doing all our work for us we 
could sit back and w^atch ourselves dwindle from strong 
men into mice. To a certain extent, the art of relaxation 
or doing nothing is a good thing in life, for nobody can 
stand the strain of continual tiring work. All things, how- 
ever, whether they be food, entertainment or relaxation, 
should be taken in moderation and not to excess. One often 
finds it is those who are continually in support of doing 
nothing, who find they are unable to support themselves.

T.C.S. vs. OLD BOYS 
At Port Hope, December 8. Won 6-4 

Led by the line of Hall, Long, and Winnett the first 
team won its initial victory of the season, displaying a 
convincing effort to defeat a team of Old Boys by a score 
of 6-4. The game was fast throughout and only two 
penalties were awarded in the entire sixty minutes. 

T.C.S. were quick to open the scoring when Wood took 
a pass from Long and drove home a low twenty footer. 
However, it was not long before John Seagram put the Old 
Boys back in the game with a hard slap shot which was 
everything but seen by the T.C.S. netminder. Throughout 
the remaining minutes of the period both teams were held 
to a stalemate. 

The tempo slowed down in the second period and neither 
team had many shots until the eleven minute mark when 
Al Shier took a pass-out from Dunlap and drove home a 
low sizzler. Within seconds the Maroon and Black hit the 
score card again, this time the marksman was Long. The 
Old Boys began to show some fight at this point and Tom 
Lawson slapped home a pass from Church. However, in 
the last minute of the period, Arbuthnott scored unassisted 
to give the School an impressive margin. 

The visitors put on the pressure in the third stanza 
but were slowed down by some very close checking. At 


9.56 John Long sent one of his hard backhands into the 
upper left hand corner to cut down the School's margin 
to one goal. After a brief lull the home team once more 
picked up speed and sent in another pair, Budge and Outer- 
bridge being the marksmen. In the final minutes of play 
Church put away a long drive from the blue line and the 
game ended with the School out in front by a score of 6-4. 


At Port Hope, January 14. Tied 5-5 

In their second game of the season the Maroon and 
Black battled to a 5-all tie with the fast, hard checking 
Kappa Alpha team. 

The first period was exceptionally fast and although 
both teams were held scoreless there were many chances 
but the goalies always seemed to turn up with the puck. 
In the final minutes Long broke through the opposition's 
defence and drove a hard low shot which seemed to hit the 
goal post and deflect into the net but the ruling was that 
the puck had not passed over the line. 

The second frame saw the visitors open the scoring 
on a shot from five feet out. However, it was not long before 
Wood scored unassisted after an excellent exhibition of 
stick-handling. Seconds later Campbell put in another on 
a long shot from the blue line. Throughout the rest of the 
period the close body checking increased, and it was not 
until 19.06 that the visitors managed to drive home their 
second of the day. This time the marksman was Church. 

The final period was the best of the game and although 
the checking decreased, the speed of play did not. The 
School was the first to hit the twine when Hall scored on 
a short fly pass from Long. Again the K.A.'s jumped out 
in front on a goal by Tom Lawson who just managed to 
put the puck over the line in a goal-mouth scramble. The 
School was quick to retaliate and Winnett was the producer 
on a rink wide pass from Shier. After a short lull the Maroon 
and Black tied it up with Long scoring. Hall soon scored 


his second of the game when he beat the opposition's goahe 
on a hard twenty footer which deflected in off an unknown 
leg. With only seconds to go in the game Church tied up 
the score and when the final whistle blew, it was a 5-5 dead- 


At Port Hope, January 21. Tied 3-3 

In the third game of the season Bigside came from 
behind to eke out a tie with the Sahara Desert Canoe Club, 
the final score being 3-3. 

The game started quickly and both teams played wide 
open hockey with both goalies called upon to make difficult 
saves. At the seven minute mark Bob Wood notched the first 
goal on a pass out from Dunlap. The play was fairly even for 
the rest of the period and no damage was done when Long 
and Gray went off for tripping. 

The second period started very fast with Sahara putting 
the pressure on. Dalgleish in the Trinity nets was outstand- 
ing. However, Sahara began to fight back and at the eight 
minute mark Collins countered for them. Sahara continued 
to dominate the play, and Lindsay scored, putting them 
ahead. The School then put on the pressure and the goal- 
tending for Sahara was superb as numerous break-aways 
were turned back. At the 15 minute mark Ed Long assisted 
by Terry Hall tied the score. Osier came back with a goal 
for the Sahara sextet just as the period ended. 

The play in the last period was very fast and close with 
both teams playing heads-up hockey. Peter Budge flipped 
in the tying goal at the 17 minute mark on a pass from 

At Port Hope, January 25. Won 6-1 

In front of excellent goaltending by Mike Burns, the 
School swept to a 6-1 victory over Pickering College. Led 


by Hall and Long, the School dominated the play through 
a rather erratic game. 

Terry Hall opened the scoring at the four minute mark 
after being set up by Eddy Long, for the School. The School 
kept the pressure up and was rewarded when Wood scored 
on a pass from Robb. McMuUan scored for Pickering on a 
boimcing shot which Burns had no chance to stop. In the 
dying minutes of the first period, with the School short- 
handed. Long again set Hall up and his shot was good. 

The second period produced some rugged hockey on 
both sides and neither team was able to come up with a 
scoring combination. 

In the third period the School took complete control 
and gave a fine display of hockey. Peter Budge slipped the 
puck in after Bob Wood carried it in on goal. With Picker- 
ing short-handed, Bert Winnett also scored for the School. 
At the 14 minute mark of the third period Richard Seagram 
grabbed a loose puck in his own end and carried it the length 
of the ice to score on a sizzler from thirty feet out. This 
fine play closed the scoring. 

T.C.S. vs. S.A.C. 
At Aurora, January 28. Won 4-3 

The opening whistle saw both teams spring alive with 
amazingly fast hockey. Both goal-tenders were called on 
to do their utmost from the beginning. Trinity's Bob Wood 
unleashed a hard shot from just inside the blue line to break 
the scoreless tie. 

At the sixteen minute mark S.A.C. retaliated on a screen 
shot during a goal-mouth scramble. Although T.C.S. sus- 
tained a penalty later in the period, St. Andrew's was unable 
to capitalize on this advantage. Both teams had many 
chances to take the lead but failed due to excellent goal- 
tending by both goalies. The period ended with the score 
tied 1-1. 

The second frame opened up with the same brand of 
fast hockey. S.A.C. dominated the play and had many 


chances to score but failed due to the excellent goal-tending 
of Dalgleish. However, at the seven minute mark Keith put 
one away on a pass from Wyse. Trinity came back fast, 
and half a minute later Shier scored assisted by Seagram. 
T.C.S. again received a penalty later in the period, but ex- 
cellent goal-tending and brilliant back-checking enabled the 
School to withstand the S.A.C. power play. 

In the final period T.C.S. started off strongly while the 
Saints' attack was marred by frequent offsides. Then, half 
way through the period, with T.C.S. one man short, Winnett 
tallied on a brilliant play assisted by Long. S.A.C. took the 
offensive but failed to score. In the closing minutes of the 
game Budge put away Trinity's final goal on a play from 

A burst of penalties left T.C.S. a two man disadvantage, 
but once again St. Andrew's failed to score. Then a few 
minutes later a fast play by Murry of St. Andrew's ended 
the scoring with a pass from close in. 

On a desperate gamble to tie the score, St. Andrew's 
withdrew their goalie. However, this was of no avail and 
the final whistle left Trinity victorious, 4-3. 

T.C.S. vs. U.T.S. 
At Port Hope, February 2. Won 7-1 

On February 2, T.C.S. met U.T.S. in a very fast and 
exciting game. The score was 7-1 for Trinity, though this 
was not indicative of the type of play seen. 

From the first, both teams played sharp hockey, with 
the puck changing possession frequently. Then Dave Outer- 
bridge took the puck from T.C.S. ice and scored unassisted. 
U.T.S. came back in a determined effort to put the puck into 
the T.C.S. net. They had their chance to do so several times 
during scrambles around the T.C.S. goal, and had it not 
been for the spectacular goalkeeping of Mike Burns they 
would have scored. Terry Hall added to Trinity's one goal 
lead by netting another on a pass from Long. T.C.S.'s 


superb organization and fine passing attack accounted for 
the edge that the School had over U.T.S. in this period. 

At the beginning of the second period, Bob Wood rushed 
in alone and scored on a well placed shot. Much body check- 
ing was seen in this period though only one penalty was 
dealt out to each side. Then T.C.S. received a penalty and 
U.T.S. tallied, Bob Anderson scoring their only goal. 

Trinity came back strongly in the third period, Budge 
scored twice being assisted both times by Wood. Outer- 
bridge who was playing a superb game scored once again 
unassisted. Then U.T.S. was given a penalty. This gave 
Long the chance to set up Winnett who scored the last 
goal. Soon afterwards the final whistle went leaving the 
score at 7-1 for a T.C.S. victory. 



At Port Hope, January 18. Lost 2-0 

In their first game of the season Middleside suffered 
defeat by a 2-0 count at the hands of Lakefield firsts in a 
fast but rugged game. 

The first period started off very slowly with both teams 
quite unorganized. As the period progressed the play 
quickened, but both teams were held scoreless. 

In the early minutes of the second stanza Hart put 
Lakefield out in front 1-0. Middleside fought back to try 
to tie the score but to no avail. Later in the period during 
a scramble in front of the T.C.S. goal Ruinnir shot the puck 
into the net, making the score 2-0 for the Grove. 

During the third period the School tried hard to even 
the score but Lakefield managed to retain their 2-0 lead. 

T.C.S. vs. U.C.C. 
At Port Hope, January 21. Won 4-3 

T.C.S. played host to the Upper Canada College seconds 
on Saturday, January 21. The School played fast hockey 
from the opening whistle and less than two minutes after 


the start of the game, Stephenson passed to Marett who 
drove the puck past the U.C.C, goalie to open up the scoring. 
This sparked the Upper Canada team which was rewarded 
with a goal by Ross. Mid-way through the period Marett 
displayed some good stick-handling as he went through 
the Upper Canada defense and put T.C.S. in the lead once 

U.C.C. opened the second period quickly on an un- 
assisted goal by Roberts. The School then settled down 
and played good, smooth hockey. A pass play from Binnie 
to Smith clicked as the latter scored for Trinity. 

In the early minutes of the third frame Farnsworth 
scored on a pass from Hyland. With half the period gone, 
Black cut the Trinity margin to one goal as he scored un- 
assisted. In the dying minutes of the game, Upper Canada 
gave everything they had in an attempt to obtain the 
equalizer. However, Middleside's strong defence was able 
to ward off the power plays of the visitors, and the game 
ended with Trinity victorious. 

At Port Hope, January 25. Tied 3-3 

In a hotly contested hockey game Middleside was held 
to a 3-3 tie by the Pickering second hockey team. 

Pickering took the initiative and scored almost imme- 
diately after the opening whistle. For the remainder of 
the first period they tried to press home their advantage 
but Trinity stopped their attack. 

In the second period Trinity took the offensive and at 
8.05 Stevenson tallied on a pass from Binnie. Pickering 
tried repeatedly to regain their lead but excellent goal-tend- 
ing by Mockridge kept them off the score board for the 
rest of the period. 

Trinity came to life in the final period with Hyland 
and «Marett scoring two fast goals. Pickering came back 
fast and managed to net another goal making the score 3-2. 


Still pressing hard, Pickering scored once more just before 
the final whistle to make the score 3-3 and end the game 
in a tie. 

T.C.S. vs. U.T.S. 

At Port Hope, February 4. Lost 4-3 

On February 4, U.T.S. visited T.C.S. to play Middle- 
side and it was a close hard-fought battle all the way, with 
neither team showing much superiority over the other. 
U.T.S., however, emerged victors by a 4-3 score. 

The first period saw U.T.S. score two quick goals by 
Dave Ingram and Pete Pearson, as they swarmed all over 
the Trinity cage. But half-way through the period Knight 
scored from Hyland for the first Trinity goal. Then, minutes 
later, Ingram again gave U.T.S. a two goal lead, dumping 
in a pass from Doug Davis. However, before the period 
ended, Little had scored for Trinity, making the score at 
the end of the first period 3-2 in favour of U.T.S. 

The second period was very close fought, with neither 
team being able to score, but in the third period U.T.S. 
added another goal by Jim Mills, and although Hyland 
scored a short time later, the game ended in a victory for 

T.C.S. vs. ORONO 
At Port Hope, February 11. Won 8-2 

On February 11, Middleside played host to Orono, and 
won by the score of 8-2. 

The first period saw Middleside score three goals. 
Smith ii opened the scoring on a pass from Stephenson ii, 
and minutes later Hyland slapped in Binnie's pass. Then 
just before the period ended Marett scored on a beautiful 
shot after taking a pass from Smith ii. 

In the second period Middleside added three more goals. 
Perkins scored half way through the period followed shortly 
by Famsworth, assisted by Hyland ii and Knight. Then 
Stephenson ii scored from Marett, to end the period. 


However, in the third period, Orono scored two quick 
goals by Carleton and Lane, but Middleside retahated with 
Stephenson i scoring from Perkins, and Stephenson ii, from 
Smith and Marett. 


At Port Hope, January 28. Lost 4-3 

For the first time in several years T.C.S. played host to 
the Port Hope Juveniles. The game was fast and clean 
throughout with only two penalties, one to each side. The 
Port Hopers had to come from behind in the third period 
to win 4-3. 

The first period started very fast with the School play- 
ing very cautiously. This stanza featured many end to end 
rushes, climaxed when Cancilla scored for Port Hope at the 
sixteen minute mark. 

In the second period the School hit its stride and ex- 
ploded with three goals within two minutes. The first came 
off the stick of Captain John Little on a pass from Boughner. 
Just 48 seconds later Boughner shot the puck past the 
Panther netminder. A Farnsworth to Hyland pass produced 
another goal 30 seconds later. This splurge caught the Port 
Hopers by surprise but in the dying minutes it was only 
fMockridge's brilliant effort in goal that kept the Panthers 
off the scoring sheet. 

The third period belonged to the Juveniles. Their fine 
play was rewarded by three goals, Foot scoring twice and 
Wakely once. Port Hope kept the pressure on through most 
of the last period but had to fight off a desperate drive by 
the School in the closing minutes. Time ran out with the 
School pressing, but to no avail. 

The Juvenile team, while small, has reached their 
league play-offs and we wish them luck and hope to see them 
again soon. 



At Lakefield, February 22. Won 5-3 

Middleside found the smaller Lakefield rink much to 
their liking as they swarmed over the Grove 5-3. The School 
out-shot Lakefield 57-27 and it is only because of an out- 
standing Grove goaltender that the game was not much 
more one-sided. The contest was played on natural ice and 
this accounted for the exceptionally fast game. 

Lakefield opened the scoring when Creswick beat Young 
in the T.C.S. nets from close in. From then on the School 
dominated the play. Perkins scored for the School on a 
pass from Boughner. A smart passing play was climaxed 
for the Maroon and Black when Farnsworth scored two 
minutes later with the assist going to Knight. At the close 
of the first period the School's back checking let up just 
long enough for Creswick to grab a loose puck at the blue- 
line and score. 

In the second period the School scored three times, the 
first coming when Boughner knocked in a rebound off 
Perkin's stick. McNairn scored from the blue-line when the 
puck bounced off a Lakefield player. Don Farnsworth closed 
the scoring for the School on a solo effort. 

The third stanza was slower as both teams showed 
signs of tiredness after two very fast skating periods. The 
Grove fought gamely at the end but were only able to come 
up with one goal, scored by Dary. The game ended with 
T.C.S. on the long end of a 5-3 score. 



At Port Hope, January 18. Won 2-1 

In their first game of the season Littleside showed 
promise in defeating the Grove 2-1. 

The team played together from the opening whistle 
and at the three minute mark Connell scored on a pass 


from Pootmans. This tally was followed five minutes later 
by another by Connell with Pootmans again assisting. 

The rest of the period and the one that followed it 
were uneventful except for two evenly divided penalties 
to both sides. 

In the third period the Grove took the initiative and 
Matthews scored on a pass from DeWolf . Both teams failed 
to capitalize on further scoring opportunities and the game 
ended with T.C.S. leading 2-1. 

T.C.S. vs. U.C.C. 
At Port Hope, January 21. Lost 5-1 

Playing a larger, more experienced U.C.C. team Little- 
side was defeated 5-1 at Port Hope. 

From the outset U.C.C. showed their superiority over 
the smaller Trinity team and controlled the puck most of 
the time. Then at the eight minute mark Armour opened 
the scoring for U.C.C. and Powell quickly followed also for 
U.C.C. making the score 2-0. U.C.C. managed to score once 
more before the end of the period and they led 3-0. 

The second period followed with no goals being made 
by either side. 

In the last twenty, however, Midley and Powell put in 
two quick goals for U.C.C. At 8.45, Shamess put the School 
in the scoring column on an unassisted goal. The period 
ended without further scoring and the game went to U.C.C. 

T.C.S. vs. ST. ANDREW'S 
At Aurora, January 28. Won 4-1 

In their second inter-school game of the season the 
Littleside squad pounded home a four to one victory over 
a battling Saint Andrew's team. 

The first period produced fast, aggressive hockey and 
although neither team managed to score until the 18 minute 
mark each had several chances. With a minute to go 


Shamess slapped home Barbour's rebound to put the School 
in the lead. However, the Saints fought right back and re- 
taliated on a goal mouth scramble with twenty seconds to go. 

This was the end of the game as far as the Saints were 
concerned. The second and third stanzas saw the Maroon 
and Black hit the mesh three more times. At the five minute 
mark of the second frame Dick scored on a rinkwide pass 
from Cundill. Then Cundill scored on a surprise breakaway 
and when the second period ended the score was 3-1. 

The third period was one of little action although Con- 
nell added another goal to the School's score. Thus when 
the final whistle blew the Maroon and Black were victorious 
by a score of 4-1. 


At Port Hope, February 13. Lost 4-3 

The game opened very evenly, but Kingston took an 
early lead when Owland scored at the three minute mark. 
However, Shamess tied the score several minutes later and 
the first period ended on a Kingston goal by Grass in the 
last second of play. T.C.S. came back strongly in the second 
period. P. Barbour scored two goals for one by Mont- 
gomery of Kingston. In the third stanza after a very even 
second period of play, the Midgets again went in front dur- 
ing a goal-mouth scramble when Owland scored. The visitors 
kept their hard-won lead and the game ended 4-3 in their 


At Lakefleld, February 22. Tie 3-3 

During the first two periods the Grove scored once, 
though the play was close all the way. At the beginning 
of the third period, facing a 1-0 lead, Trinity caught fire. 
Shamess put Trinity on the scoreboard when he hit the net 
on a breakaway. A few minutes later Hodgetts made it 2-1 
on a pass from Pootmans, and Shamess scored again when 


he blazed a shot for our final tally on a pass from Barbour. 
This seemed to bring the Grove back to life and Armstrong 
scored on a screen shot to make it 3-2. In the dying minutes 
of the game the Grove managed to tie the score at 3-3. 


T.O.S. vs. OSHAWA 
At Port Hope, January 38 

The Trinity Gym team, made up of Irwin, Ham, Rayson, 
Ellis and Davies, defeated Oshawa Collegiate in an extremely 
close gym competition on January 28. For their first com- 
petition of the season the boys put on an extremely fine 
exhibition. Rayson, the top man for Trinity, placed second 
in the total scoring with Ham coming a close third. Rayson 
gained a first place in the pommel horse, a second in the 
parallels and a third in the horizontal bar. For the visitors, 
Bell put on the best showing, placing first in the box horse 
and mats and gaining a second in the pommel horse. Bell 
was also the highest scoring individual thus attaining first 
place in total points. 


At Port Hope, February 11 

On Saturday, February 11, T.C.S. played host to three 
visiting gym teams — Oshawa Collegiate, Etobicoke Col- 
legiate, and the West End Y.M.C.A. It was an extremely 
good competition with all competitors putting on an excel- 
lent show. We should like to express our sympathy to Steve 
Ranton, Etobicoke's top man, who injured his elbow in his 
first exercise and was unable to continue. 

The highest individual scorer was Taylor of West End 
Y, with Disney of Oshawa second and Irwin of Trinity third.

To start off the 1956 Squash season, Mr. Landry took 
a group of six players down to Massachusetts to represent 
the School against three other school squash teams. 

Half of the team drove down after meeting at School 
on Tuesday, January 6, and were met by the other half at 
the Middlesex School, Concord, Mass. The team consisted 
of Drummond, Meighen, Proctor, Wells, Spivak and Wother- 
spoon i. 

The first match played against Middlesex was lost 5-0 
but our players were given a chance to try out the un- 
familiar wooden courts. Middlesex entertained the team on 
Saturday night. 

On Sunday the group drove to the Brooks School and 
on their way they stopped off at Phillips Academy, And- 
over. This school has 760 boys and is the largest Prep school 
in the country. In the afternoon the team arrived at Brooks 
School in North Andover, Mass. Brooks, considered to have 
the best team in New England Prep League, defeated us 4-1 
but the squad was showing much improvement. 

On .Monday, after spending the night at Brooks, the 
squad drove into Boston to spend the morning sight-seeing 
and to play the Harvard Second Freshmen Team in the 
afternoon. In an exciting team match Harvard defeated us 
3-2 by taking a match point in the last contest. By then 
the squad had improved considerably and gave an excellent 
accoimt of itself. The rest of the afternoon was spent learn- 
ing squash from the Harvard coach Jack Barnaby. 

The team motored back on Monday night and Tuesday, 
arriving about 6.30 at T.C.S. on Tuesday evening. 


On the trip down the weather was good but driving 
rain and icy roads hampered the trip back. 

Mr. Landry considered the trip very successful and all 
who took part enjoyed it thoroughly.

At Malvern, February 3. 

In their second meet of the season, Trinity finished one

"Timers and judges ready. Swimmers, take your mark. 
Get set. Go!" 

There was a tremendous splash as the Trinity team 
sprinted ahead and chalked up an exceptionally high score 
for a one-sided victory. 

Right from the first "Go" the School surged ahead and 
took a firm grasp on first and second positions in most races. 
By the end of the evening Trinity had won ten out of the 
fifteen events. 

During the meet, Bonnycastle, Newland and Southern 
of Trinity put on an excellent diving exhibition and Lome 
Hale dove for Peterborough. Hale is one of the top Cana- 
dian Y.M.C.A. divers and he showed us how he became 

Following this, we had some "real" diving, or shall we 
say, "different diving." It was done by a team called the 
Princeton Puddle Jumpers, made up of Ross, Proctor, and 
Arbuthnott. The first three dives were done in a series. They 
were called the "flip, flop and flunk dives in a layout posi- 
tion." The great sensation of the evening was Proc's "swan 


dive in an outright position." Many thanks to the Prince- 
ton boys for their great show.

DQSKei Da 

At Port Hope, January 21. Won 47-24. 

In their first game of the season the basketball squad 
defeated Port Hope 47-24. The School had a decided advan- 
tage over the visitors and were able to obtain a 13-5 lead 
by the end of the first quarter. Led by Dunbar the School 
accounted for 13 more points and held their rivals to a 26-11 
margin by the half. 

The pace slowed down during the second half with both 
teams having difficulty under the baskets. In the closing 
minutes of the fourth quarter T.C.S. came to life and sank 
eight points to win the game 47-24. Dunbar was high scorer 
with 16 points and Gilbert netted eight. This game showed 
that the team has great potential and should have a very 
successful season. 

T.C.S.— Dunbar (16), Gilbert (8), Eaton (6), Robinson (5), Hart 
(4), Cochrane (4), Falkner (2), Colman (2), Smith, Noble. 

T.C.S. vs. U.C.C. 

At Port Hope. Won 65-24. 

In their second game of the season the T.C.S. team 
easily defeated U.C.C. 65-24. The visitors were a smaller 
and inexperienced squad. From the beginning of the game 
the School had a decided advantage over their opponents 
as they scored repeatedly from under the basket. The U.C.C. 
squad was confused by Dunbar's fast breaks as he scored 


repeatedly. The ball was consistently under the visitors' 
basket and the School continued to amass an increasing total. 
Tisdale outjumped U.C.C. around their basket and rebounded 
the ball into the netting. At the end of the half the School 
had a commanding lead of 33-8. 

The second half started slowly with the Trinity squad 
slowing down their pace. U.C.C. began to click and scored 
on impressive rushes. The School still held the play and 
led by Dunbar and Tisdale took a 45-19 lead at the three 
quarter mark. The School then dominated the play con- 
sistently. Eaton scored from in close and Falkner hit the 
net on a set of shots from the corner. The School's own 
defence kept the U.C.C. score down on what chances they 
had near the basket. The School scored 20 points in the last 
period, against the visitors' six, to win. Although the 
School's attack showed up well they moved the ball slowly 
and most of the points were scored on an unguarded basket. 
T.C.S. — Tisdale, 16; Dunbar, 14; Eaton, 10; Cochrane, 4; Noble, 4; 
Gilbert, 2; Smith, 2; Hart, Robinson. 

T.C.S. vs. S.A.C. 

At Aurora, January 28. Won 52-28. 

Playing their first away game of the season the School's 
senior squad showed their potential by defeating the S.A.C. 
second team by a score of 52-28. Although the visitors show- 
ed improving form, they lacked the ability to regain their 
rebounds and had it not been for this, their score might 
have been higher. The game started slowly, both squads 
unsure of themselves, and the first period ended with the 
School leading 12-5. But then T.C.S. began to work, and 
Dunbar scored repeatedly on the fast break. Tisdale also 
amassed 12 points in the first half scoring repeatedly from 
under the basket and on rebounds. The combined effort by 
these two gave the School a 32-18 margin by half time. 

At the commencement of the third period both teams 
were slowed down by close checking and poor passing. The 
School finally was able to break loose and score 10 points. 


At the end of the third quarter the School led by a 41-22 
margin. The pace in the fourth quarter quickened and the 
Saints checked the School well, stealing the ball from them 
and preventing any close-in shots at the basket. In the 
closing minutes the School shook free and sank a total of 
11 points for the quarter. The Saint's shooting was off as 
they had numerous break-aways on our basket, and missed 
a good percentage. The game ended with the School on the 
top end of a 52-28 score, but this was not a true indication 
as the S.A.C. five played excellent defensive ball. 

T.C.S.— Dunbar, 18; Tisdale, 12; Robinson, 9; Noble, 6; Falkner, 
3; Gilbert, 2; Smith, 2; Hart, Cochrane. 

T.C.S. vs. U.T.S. 

At Port Hope, February 4. Lost 72-48. 

The senior basketball squad suffered their first setback 
of the season at the hands of U.T.S. 72-48. The visitors were 
a more experienced team using a strong zone defense and 
an effective pivot play under the basket. The School started 
scoring on two fast breaks by Dunbar before U.T.S. were 
completely organized. The first period was slow with both 
teams missing on easy set shots and failing to take advan- 
tage of fast breaks. The Maroon and Black were able to out- 
score their opponents 12-10 at the end of the period. 

The second frame started fast with U.T.S. scoring on 
long passes and on short drives under the basket. McKechnie 
scored effectively from under the basket after being fed 
floor passes from the corner. Gilbert was the School's high 
scorer of the half, netting eight points on set shots from 
outside the key. The U.T.S. squad began to show their power 
as the half ended 28-18 in their favour. 

Both teams faltered on their defense in the third quarter 
as each squad scored effectively. The U.T.S. team scored 
on drives under the basket setting up McKechnie time and 
time again, who scored on easy jump shots. T.C.S. was un- 
able to get in under the basket for short jump shots but 
scored the bulk of their points on the set shots from the 


corner and outside the key with a few from fast breaks. But 
when the period ended U.T.S. still held a commanding lead 
of 56-38. 

In the fmal frame the School seemed to be confused and 
astonished by the accuracy with which McKechnie was fed 
and scored. U.T.S. piled up points consistently and their 
defense tightened, enabling the School to net only 10 points. 
Thus the game ended with the decisive score of 72-48 for 

T.C.S.— Dunbar, 14; Gilbert, 14; Tisdale, 10; Falkner, 4; Noble, 4; 
Eaton, 2; Smith, Hart, Colman, Kerr. 

T.C.S. vs. U.C.C. 
At U.C.C, Febi-uary 11. Lost 45-21. 

Upper Canada played host to Trinity in a very exciting 
game on Saturday, February 11. It was Trinity's first start 
of the season against a senior team. Upper Canada started 
fast and continued to put on a sustained drive throughout 
the first half. By half time, U.C.C, led by Omad, was win- 
ning by a score of 30-10. However, at half time T.C.S. was 
able to reorganize their forces and from then on the baskets 
didn't come quite so easily for the Upper Canada team. How- 
ever, the twenty point lead was just too much for the Trinity 
five to overcome and at the final whistle the score was 45-21 
for Upper Canada. Upper Canada had an excellent fast break 
which was always successful. Their greatest asset was their 
accurate shooting from outside the key. Throughout the 
game it was evident that if our boys had perfected these 
shots the game would have been much closer. However, 
Trinity never lost heart and considering the determined 
drive they were putting on in the fourth quarter the final 
outcome was in doubt right up to the final whistle. Omad 
played extremely well for U.C.C. scoring 28 points. 

T.C.S. — Robinson, 6; Tisdale, 6; Dunbar, 3; Gilbert, 2; Eaton, 2; 
Falkner, 2; Noble, Hart, Smith, Cochrane. 


At Port Hope, February 15. Lost 51-47. 

The T.C.S. five suffered their third set-back in a row 
at the hands of the Cobourg five. The game was extremely 
slow with both teams failing to show spectacular form, 
missing easy shots from close in. The Cobourg five took 
command in the opening period and worked up a 12-5 lead 
by the end of the first frame. The School did not move the 
ball fast enough, and their sloppy passing hindered their 
scoring potential. In the second quarter T.C.S. started to 
move, but only in the fast rushes and Cobourg was able to 
preserve a substantial lead. Eaton proved to be the School's 
main scorer of the half, netting eight of an 18 point total. 
The second half started with the School down 21-18 but they 
had cut their opposition's lead to one point early in the third 
frame. Scoring on set shots from around the key and on 
rebounds, the visitors soon increased their lead to 39-28 at 
the three-quarter mark. 

The School came alive in the last quarter and netted 
19 points but Cobourg commanded the leadership for points. 
Dunbar led the School netting nine points in the last quarter. 
The Maroon and Black began moving in the last minutes, 
sinking six points and cutting their opponents' lead to four 
points before time ran out on them. The final score read 
51-47 in favour of Cobourg. The score indicated the play, 
with both teams missing easy shots, and passing poorly. 

T.C.S. — Dunbar, 20; Eaton, 10; Gilbert, 4; Robinson,' 4; Falkner, 2; 
Hart, 2; Noble, 2; Smith, 2; Cochrane, 1. 


At Port Hope, January 21. Won 23-19. 

The Trinity "B" Basketball squad was successful in 
turning back the Port Hope Juniors in a short, close con- 
test by a score of 23-19. It was the team's first game, and 
a great amount of spirit and team work was displayed. Port 
Hope had the edge in the scoring department throughout 


the first three periods of the game; however, the School led 
by Falkner and Colman, came to life in the final period. 

T.C.S. — Falkner, 12; Thomas, 4; Empey, 2; Colman, 2; Smithers 
2; DeHoogh, 1; Kerr, Seaborn. 

T.C.S. vs. S.A.C. 
At Aurora, January 28. Won 33-11. 

In their second contest of the season the School scored 
a decisive victory over Saint Andrew's by defeating them 
33-11, in a rough but fairly slow game. The first quarter 
started well for the School as Kerr scored consistently. 
T.C.S. dominated the play and fought hard to hold the 
S.A.C. team to three points in the first frame. 

The second quarter found the Trinity five playing the 
same brand of basketball and they continued to dominate 
the play. The School, greatly helped by Falkner's two- 
handed set shots, showed good passing and team-work. The 
half ended with Trinity leading 21-7. 

During the last half, the School play slowed down. A 
more relaxed and progressive brand of ball was seen as the 
squad took its time and ran its plays more smoothly. The 
guards took a few shots from the outside and the forwards 
often stole the ball from the Saint Andrew's team. 

T.C.S. — Kerr, 11; Falkner, 8; Seaborn, 6; Thompson, 4; Grant 
Duff, 2; Smithers, 2; Thomas, De Hoogh, Empey. 

T.C.S. vs. U.T.S. 
At Port Hope, February 4 Lost 41-29. 

The School's "B" basketball squad played host to the 
U.T.S. Junior basketball team in their third contest of the 
season. The winners played an effective man for man defence 
which had T.C.S. baffled throughout most of the first half. 
The game opened quickly as U.T.S. immediately put on the 
pressure. Waddell played under the basket for the visitors 
and scored the same number of points as did the Trinity 
squad in the first quarter. 


The second quarter started with the School on the short 
side of a 20-10 score. The team's passing attack began to 
click and the margin in the score became closer, Colman 
began to scoop the ball off the back-boards, and thus the 
fast breaks began to work. The half came to a close with 
the School trailing by a close margin. 

The third period showed a more advanced brand of ball 
by the U.T.S. team. They out-passed and out-shot the T.C.S. 
team and once more obtained a considerable lead. The School 
then fought back with four quick baskets, but U.T.S. con- 
tinued the pressure and came back with an equal number 
of points. The play slackened on both sides and there was 
no further scoring until the last two minutes of the quarter. 
Seaborn and Kerr led the attack and cut the U.T.S. lead 
down to 32-23 by the end of the quarter. 

At the start of the final eight minutes of play U.T.S. 
once more dominated the play. The School took several 
shots but was unable to score. Finally, Falkner scored four 
points and T.C.S. made a final attempt to catch the U.T.S. 
team. However, the attempt proved to be unsuccessful as 
U.T.S. went on to win 41-29. 

T.C.S. — Kerr, 8; Falkner, 8; Seaborn, 6; De Hoogh, 2; Smithers, 2; 
Thomas, 2; Colman, 1; Grant Duff, Empey. 

T.C.S. vs. U.C.C. 

At U.C.C, February 11. Lost 30-20. 

The "B" squad took the floor against a more ex- 
perienced Upper Canada team which dominated most of the 
play. U.C.C. took approximately twice as many shots as 
did the Trinity team. This seemed to be the main factor 
in the scoring race as the team passed up several oppor- 
tunities to shoot on the Upper Canada basket. However, 
near the end of the first half, Colman began to make use of 
the backboards, and Falkner connected on a couple of shots 
from the keyhole. 

The second half started, as did the first, with Upper 
Canada once more controlling the play. The play then be- 


came loose and slow as the passing and dribbling for both 
teams slackened. Midway through the final quarter, the 
School made their final bid to overcome the U.C.C. lead. 
Their fast break and shooting began to click as the Upper 
Canada lead began to dwindle. The School was unable to 
keep up the pressure and U.C.C. sank three fast baskets 
before the game ended with Upper Canada on the long end 
of a 30-20 score. 

T.C.S.— Falkner, 8; Seaborn, 6; De Hoogh, 2; Thomas, 2; Kerr, 1; 
Smithers, 1; Grant Duff, Bogert. 


At Port Hope, February 15. Lost 35-14. 

It was a determined Cobourg Junior Basketball team 
that took the floor against Trinity's "B" Basketball team. 
Cobourg took the lead from the opening whistle by scoring 
six quick points before T.C.S. was able to retaliate. Although 
at the end of the quarter the two teams were fairly close, 
it became obvious by the half time that the School was 
outclassed by the sharp-passing Cobourg five. At the half 
time the score was 29-9. 

Due to the lack of time the second half was cut short. 
However, it was doubtful whether T.C.S. could have been 
able to catch their opponents. 

The team never showed signs of discouragement and 
it was Cobourg's sharp passing and their extremely accurate 
shooting that made the difference. Trinity's greatest asset 
was its effective fast break. The top scorers were McCraig 
and Dalgarnd for Cobourg while it was Falkner, Kerr and 
Thompson who led Trinity's team. 

X.C.S. — Falkner, 8; Kerr, 2; Thompson, 2; De Hoogh, 1; Col- 
man, 1; Seaborn, Grant Duff, Bogert, Smithers, Thomas.

The Junior School Pantomime, a feature of T.C.S. 
Christmas entertainment, was an unqualified success again 
this year. The entire Junior School once more participated — 
some as actors; some as singers; and the rest as the all- 
important stage-hands. The people on stage for the finale 
compared in number to Tamburlaine! Our theme this year 
was "The Night Before Christmas." Stockings were hung 
in the traditional manner and then the Christmas Wizard 
appeared. His magic summoned the Candy Canes, the 
Enchanted Crackers, and the Toys to life. A wonderful 
party was held and at its height Santa Claus, Mrs. Claus, 
Rudolph and his helpers arrived. Presents were distributed 
and with rousing songs and Christmas wishes the Pantomime 

Last year, U.C.C. Prep inaugurated a Theatre Night 
of three short One Act Plays. U.C.C. Prep; St. Andrew's 
Macdonald House; and the Junior School T.C.S. were the 
participants. Our play "Brothers In Arms" by Merrill Deni- 
son was very well received. This evening is being repeated 
this year. U.C.C. Prep, Lakefield, and the Junior School are 
doing plays. We have chosen "The Voice of the People" by 
Robertson Davies and rehearsals are in full swing. We are 
sure that March 17 will be another interesting and success- 
ful Theatre Night. 


The home of the abominable snowman is in the Hima- 
layan region. Only the Sherpas, the natives, have actually 
seen it and the only evidence white man has that it exists 
are the foot prints which have been found now and again 
in the snow. 

The yeti, as the Sherpas call the abominable snowman, 
has been seen by the natives both with white and brown 
fur. It is said to have been up to six and a half feet tall. 


It is described by the Sherpas as a powerful, fierce, shaggy 
creature with long, matted hair falling over its bare face, 
and it will eat human flesh. One point is that its knee and 
elbow joints are reversed and its toes point backward. 

The shape of the foot prints vary also; they have been 
found circular in shape, in the shape of a bear's foot, and 
also like a human's. Also steps have been found cut in the 
ice by the yeti. 

The yeti may be a peaceful creature feeding on young 
shoots and roots, or it may be fierce. Whatever it is, now 
that there are more and more people trying to climb Hima- 
layan peaks, a European is bound to see it — or will he?

Seventy-five years ago, Canada was a backwoods nation, 
known by few people in the world. Noted for her bitterly 
cold winters and vast unpopulated areas, Canada did not 
receive many immigrants, for most people who were leaving 
Europe sought warmer climates and a country where there 
were at least a few neighbours. This was Canada's great 
drawback in development. 


We have been unfortunate enough to lose three 
School pictures through water damage. Since Mr. 
Trott's death, we are unable to obtain reprints. 

If any boy has a copy of one of these pictures 
which he would like to donate to the School, would he 
please write to Mr. Tottenham.

But as years crept on, great mineral wealth was un- 
folded in Canada's vast wilds. With a small population and 
national income, we were unable to take these rich minerals 
from the ground in any large amounts. Many venturing 
Americans came to our country with large sums of working 
capital which they invested in mines and prospective land 
areas. Helping much to extract these riches from the soil, 
these Americans, through our great natural resources, have 
become some of the wealthiest people in our country to- 
day. These men who foresaw the great future of our coun- 
try have contributed much to our development. It is through 
their examples that Canadians should learn confidence in 
their country's excellent investment opportunities. Sound 
investments in Canada will help the individual financially 
and help to make Canada a great and wealthy nation of the 
future. — S- ^- Wilson, FoiTTi riAi. 


What is a riddle? A riddle is a clever question, the 
answer of which is to be guessed. 

In modern times we use riddles for social amusement, 
but in ancient days they were sometimes a matter of death. 
There are many Norse and Swedish tales that tell of the 
great riddle guessing contests of old. 

Some riddles are worded so that they sound like a 
serious question. An example of this is: Q. Which travels 
faster, heat or cold? A. Heat, you can catch cold. 

Many riddles are comparisons. A good example of this 
is: Q. Why are corn and potatoes like Chinese idols? A. Be- 
cause they have eyes that don't see, and ears which don't 

Surprise is what makes riddles fun. A very good ex- 
ample is: Q. How do you punctuate the sentence, "I saw a 
five dollar bill on the street?" A. Make a dash after it! 

Riddles are always fun to guess wherever you are, even 
if you don't always win sixty-four thousand dollars.

It comes slowly, 

Fluttering, rolling, 

Winding down from sky, 

Twisting, turning, 

Riding, curling, 

Only then to die.

It's coming in 

At twelve o'clock. 

It touches down 

And slips and slides. 

Rolling on three wheels 

On icy pavement. 

Then, creaking, protestingly. 

Coasts slowly to a stop.

I was sitting on the chesterfield learning a piece of 
memory work when I heard a dog whine outside. Being 
bored with my homework, I went to see what was wrong 
with the dog. 

As I came into the hall, I saw him looking in the win- 
dow. We decided to let him in because it was so cold out- 
side. The second we let the big dog in, he went nearly mad 
with joy, knocking over chairs, ruffling up the mats, and 
literally making a mess all over the house. Then we gave 
him some food which he spread from one end of the room 
to the other. 

I decided I'd never learn my memory work with that 
happy-go-lucky beast around so I went up to my room and 


studied on my bed. I don't know how he got upstairs but 
all I heard was, "Go in and see my brother," and before 
I knew what was happening, the dog jumped up on my bed 
and was licking my face with his slimy tongue. 

We decided we couldn't keep him all night so we looked 
at the tag and phoned the people who owned him. After a 
time, they came and got him and took him home. 

After he had gone, I couldn't learn my homework be- 
cause we had to clean up the house.

Aramo is my pet. Some people have cats; some people 
have dogs, and some people have birds, fish or rabbits; but 
I have Aramo. 

Aramo is small. He does not have any fur and he 
does not have ears or a mouth that a person can see. I 
keep him in a box filled with dirt and every day in the 
summer I take him out for some exercise. 

When I first found Aramo, he was in the garden bur- 
rowing in and out of the grass. He eats dirt and very small 
leaves that are in the garden. He tunnels through the earth 
and helps the flowers to grow. 

If you have not already guessed, Aramo is my pet

Twenty frustrative minutes of hockey and then 
You hear the bell ring with a terrible clang 
To end a period wild and woolly 
That really and truly makes one fully 


The next period begins and you think, with a smile, 
"I'll make this period worth my while." 
You step on the ice and slip and stumble, 
You go to shoot, but you only fumble 
The puck. 

Then in the last period, the score's zero-zero. 

You shoot; it's in! and you think, "I'm the hero!" 

But the crowd doesn't cheer, they look glum and doleful. 

And then you see you've filled the wrong 

Goal full! 

— C. J. Tottenham, Form UAL 


Six hundred years ago, a man endeavoured to conquer 
the earth. We call him Tamerlane. From a shepherd boy 
he made himself ruler of all lands between Turkey and the 
great wall of China. A small nomad clan suddenly became 
the basis of an Empire which stretched across Asia and 
half of Europe — Tartary! 

Somewhere in a lush valley not more than a thousand 
miles east of Constantinople, a shepherd boy was born. At 
the age of nineteen he proved himself worthy of being a 
warrior in the service of Kal-a-din (the king maker). Kal- 
a-din launched him on a career that flashed across two con- 
tinents aflame with lust and rapine. 

He brought kings to their knees pleading for mercy. 
He destroyed Empires and in their place welded together 
the greatest Empire that man has ever known. The people 
of Egypt to this day remember how two hundred and ninety- 
four of their ancestors were ruthlessly slaughtered and how 
eleven great pyramids made from their skulls were erected. 
Tamerlane swept through India like a black wind and 
wrought death upon all who tried to stop him. 


Tamerlane, Lord of the sun, conqueror of all men, 
plundered, burned and killed, leaving his heritage of terror 
like a scar across the face of history. 

— E. G. Robson, Form IIAI. 


Beauty! What a word! Describing the towering, snow- 
capped peaks of Everest; or a gentle, trickling Stream 
sauntering through a hard-wood forest. Telling how the 
ocean thunders down upon a sandy beach, with white-caps 
and spray flying to far-distant points. Pointing out the 
wonder of a wild rose, its delicate blossoms creeping over 
an abandoned wall, making a beautiful contrast. 

What does the word beauty mean? The dictionary's 
explanation is "that which gives pleasure to the eye," or 
"a particular grace or excellence," aesthetic pleasure gen- 

When we gaze in awe at some of Mother Nature's 
designs we wonder how these patterns were ever created. 
If you have noticed the complicated style of a pipsissewa 
you will be amazed by all the petals, stamens, and pistils. 

To some people pictures of art are beautiful; from the 
ancient works by Rubens and Raphael to modern art by 
Lome Harris and others. Down through the ages good art 
has been admired as a sign of culture. 

Beauty is a word we can't describe! Whether it be 
nature, art, or sculpture, beauty describes them all. Beauty 
is a word that belongs to mankind; we cannot get along 
without it. — N. Campbell, Form lA. 


The majestic elm is a large, sturdy tree. It is especially 
common in the eastern part of North America. It is used 
for many commercial products. It grows to a height of one 
hundred and twenty feet and has rough, gray bark. 



Pin lb 1.-^ by J. Dennys 


The leaves are heavily veined. The elm produces 
greenish-red flowers that later become winged seeds. The 
elm is used to hold the soil to prevent erosion as well as 
being the home of many birds and animals. 

The elm is a native of the United States and Canada 

and I think it is the most beautiful and graceful tree in 

North America.

One of the world's best engineers is the beaver. His 
house is made out of sticks and mud packed tightly together 
and is usually in a half -circle shape. 

Beavers are about three feet long, their ten to twelve 
inch tail included. He uses his tail to warn the other beavers 
of danger by slapping it down on the water. 

Beaver dams are made with logs, branches and twigs 
packed down with mud. Serious floods are often caused 
by beaver dams.

Co-captains of Hockey — W. J. Henning, P. T. Wurtele 
The Squad started the season with no Old Colours and 
no trained goal-keepers available. This has meant a rebuild- 
ing job from the ground up. 

With four matches played out of the six, the team has 
given a very good accoimt of itself. The players have shown 
the results of sound coaching and play their positions well. 
The back checking and skating have been good and the 
team has shown a very good fighting spirit. 

All the games played to date have been hard fought 
and the issue has been in doubt until the end. 



Junior School at Lakefield Won 4 — 1 

Junior School at U.C.C Lost 5 — 3

As usual, the boys not on the First Hockey Squad 
are divided into a league of four teams. The games have 
all been fast and furious and there is much good material 
in the making for future hockey squads. 

The first league ended in a victory for Davoud's team 
with Turner's team hard on their heels. 

Final Standing: 

1. Davoud 18 points 

2. Turner 16 

3. Gray 10 

4. Price 4 

At the present time we are well into the "Snipe Spring 
Cup." The standing as we go to press is as follows: 

1. Price 19 points 

2. Kirkpatrick 11 points 


3. Gray 2 points 





If you have been considering specific ways in which 
you could join with others to strengthen T.C.S. , rest assured 
that opportunity will come within a few weeks. 

T.C.S. is now entering its Pre-Centennial decade. As 
part of the planning for the Centennial, the Governing Body 
undertook to determine the School's financial needs and to 
establish The T.C.S. Fund, through which a new chapter 
in the School's history will be written. 

Looking ahead, the Governors see six steps that must 
be taken to advance the School along its chosen course: 

1. They must find the means of increasing masters' 
salaries considerably over the next 10 years. 

2. They must establish a more adequate pension fund 
to meet the School's obligations to masters upon their re- 

3. They must add to the School's living attractions for 

4. They must find the means of increasing the number 
of boys receiving scholarship and bursary aid. 

5. They must add to the School's efficiency by providing 
the means for proper and continued maintenance and renova- 
tion of its buildings. 

6. They must appoint a permanent director to guide the 
increasing activities of the Old Boys' Association and, also, 
to develop financial support for the School as Director of 
The T.C.S. Fund. 

The T.C.S. Fund seeks the means to make these steps 
possible. With C. F. W. Burns ('21-'25) as General Chair- 


man, preparations are already under way for an intensive 
appeal to be made this spring. 

Support is sought from every Old Boy — every parent 
of a boy — everyone who believes in the School's ideals. The 
T.C.S. Fund is destined for success when each one accepts 
his share, however modest. 

You will shortly receive a full announcement of The 
T.C.S. Fund projects and how you can help to make them 


A meeting of Old Boys in Calgary was held in February

Publication of a new Directory is planned within a few 
months. Last summer, a Toronto firm organized the send- 
ing out of questionnaires in an effort to bring our records 
up to date. Response has been gratifying and we now have 
close to 1,500 correct addresses. Our objective is 2,000 out 
of a possible 2,500 living Old Boys before publication of the 
Directory. Follow-up letters and questionnaires have just 
been sent out and we hope all Old Boys who have not yet 
returned the questionnaire will do so soon.

A very interesting letter has come from Douglas Hare 
('42-'45). He graduated from Bristol University in 1951 
and then attended the London Institute of Education; he 
then went out as a missionary teacher to St. Peter's Teacher 
Training College in Zaria, Northern Nigeria, where young 
Africans are trained as teachers for the Church Schools in 
Northern Nigeria. "I am a passionate believer," he says "in 
Christian education and the modern missionary has to be a 
professional man and his particular enterprise may not be 
so much that of evangelist or pastor as relating the truths 
of Christianity to his particular profession." His students 
stay for two years, go out and teach for two years, then the 
more promising return for two more years of higher train- 
ing. There is only one other white man on the staff, all the 
others including the Principal, "a first class man," are 
Nigerians. Douglas says the College will very likely be re- 
built and expanded on a new site. "The spirit of Christian 
service began to be inspired within me during my T.C.S. 
days; the seed was sown in Chapel, in the services and 
addresses there, I appreciated being Head Sacristan and 
learnt to love the Chapel and worship through it. The School 
crest hangs in my room out here and perhaps symbolizes 
some of the abiding influence of T.C.S." Douglas is engaged 
and hopes to be married in two years' time. He sends his 
sincere good wishes to T.C.S.

Princeton, Hugh has done well in his studies, he has been 
Chairman of the Committee on Counselling for his class, 
he is playing on the varsity hockey team, and he has held 
a research assistantship in Sociology. The scholarship which 
he has now won must surely be the most valuable ever won 
by a T.C.S. boy.

Hector Lithgow ('05-'08) has been elected Chairman 
of the Board of the Manufacturers Life Insurance Company. 
He has been with the company since 1908 and has held many 
important posts in different departments. In 1931 he was 
elected General Manager and in 1951 President. Under his 
direction the Company has grown tremendously in size and 
now has a world-wide reputation. The assets are just six 
times the amount they were when Mr. Lithgow became 
General Manager in 1931. More than any other one person 
he has been responsible for the growth of the Company 
over the past quarter of a century.

lectual spirit there. Hugh speaks very generously of his 
years here and feels we started him along the right path. 
He has been a member of the Community Service Commit- 
tee, Chairman of the Social Committee, a member of a re- 
ligious group, which is really a philosophical discussion

D.F.C.'s and he is quoted as saying that when he heard his 
old School, T.C.S., gave a half holiday in his honour it was 
one of the biggest thrills for him. He refers to his escapades 
at T.C.S. but evidently his memory is not quite as clear in 
respect to the details of them as the memory of some of 
the masters at the School. Dal is now President of the 
Empire Buff Company in Montreal. 


Bob Dewar ('46-'48) is now an Ensign in the Navy,

tising last spring to play for the Uniyersity Golf Team he 
caught a bad chill which developed into pneumonia and kept 
him in hospital for several months. He was active in Student 
Government, in honorary organizations, and played on 
numerous teams in intramural sports. While he is in the 
Navy he hopes to fly jets and is going to try to be posted 
to the Pacific area. Later he expects to enter the invest- 
ment business. Bob says he still misses T.C.S. and often 
thinks of the life he had here.

Grade XHI pupils in all Ontario Schools are this year 
writing some objective tests and detailed information is 
being collected about their school careers, interests, back- 
grounds, objectives, etc. Reports from the teachers are also 
being submitted. The principal test is the Scholastic Apti- 
tude Test, so widely used and trusted by the best colleges 
in the States, Harvard, Yale, Princton, Columbia, etc. The 
results of these tests, plus other information, will be com- 
pared with the results of the Grade XIII examinations and 
the University results for two years. Boys and girls who 
do not go to the university will also be followed. 

The enquiry is being conducted by the research section 
of the Ontario College of Education and financed largely by 
a generous grant from the Atkinson Foundation. It is the 
first time that any complete survey has been made of the 
resources of senior students in the schools and it is possible 
that some most interesting results will be available in a few 



At a series of meetings held in the autumn the Colour 
Committee decided to abandon the old custom of putting 
Roman numerals on sweaters to designate the team. The 
Bigside, Middleside and Littleside 'letters' will remain the 
same. It was felt that the numerals had become too numerous 
with so many different teams, sometimes the same numeral 
was used for different games, few people understood them, 
and the sweater often appeared to be cluttered up. 

It was also decided to adopt a black sweater coat with 
maroon trim for general use, and they are now often seen 
in off hours.

Old Boys of the early thirties were most distressed to 
hear of Milton Burt's death in Florida in January. Milton 
came to T.C.S. in September, 1934, to take charge of coach- 
ing football and his team won the Championship in a thrill- 
ing duel with Ridley at the Varsity Stadium. It was the 
first Football Championship for T.C.S. since 1911 and joy 
was unconfined. For two more seasons Mr. Burt coached 
the team and though we did not win another Championship 
his touch was always evident and the standard of football 


at T.C.S. was raised to a high point. Milton Burt was a 
man one could never forget; his constant good humour re- 
flected a happy philosophy of life, he was patient and con- 
siderate, and he had an abiding love of poetry, especially 
of Wilson Macdonald's poems. He never lost his interest 
in the School, attending most football games, and often 
sending contributions to the Bursary Fund. He will be 
sadly missed and our deep sympathy goes out to his wife.

It is important for everyone to have a well developed 
and well exercised sense of wonder. Only this quality will 
help to overcome the two defects of man which make him 
unable to live at peace with his fellow humans. These faults 
are selfishness and self-importance. 

Because of these two faults man is still far from the 
goal that all men should strive for. The period since the 
beginning of the industrial revolution has given many great 
gifts to man with which to improve his comfort and raise 


what we have begun to call his standard of living. This new 
era, first the Machine Age, and now the Atomic Age, has 
within itself vast potentialities to improve man's environ- 
ment and increase his happiness, but that only if used wisely, 
for peaceful ends, and above all, selflessly. What the world 
has gained by this era is nothing to what it could have had 
but for these two faults in man. While opening new grounds 
for advancement, it has also given these faults a wider 
range of action because the world grew more materialistic, 
more complex, and more man-made. The incessant search 
for more wealth and the urge of man to impose on others 
his imagined importance has caused the gifts of an era to 
be turned into a curse for the promotion of destruction. 
Many people are so obsessed with the desire to make a place 
for themselves in a world which men have built that they 
have lost the thread, the meaning of life. They have lost 
the connection between the world that was made for them 
to live in, and the world we built ourselves. 

In accepting the gifts of this era, it is essential that 
man keep within himself the element of wonder. He must 
free himself now and again from the life of materialism in 
which he is so powerful and look at the world with dif- 
ferent eyes. It is enough just to look at the intricacies of 
a leaf, at the majesty of a mountain scene, or at the cold 
brilliance of stars in the night sky, to grasp the powerless- 
ness and insignificance of man in the scheme of so vast and 
magnificent a Creation. Man's idolatry of the self should 
vanish when he realizes that he cannot make even a leaf; 
he will never know, he can only wonder. 



On Sunday, January 22, the Reverend Alec Henderson 
of the Port Hope Presbyterian Church spoke to us in the 
Chapel on the importance of character. He started his 
sermon with these words from St. Paul: "Lo, I am come 
to do thy will, O God!" He went on to say how this phrase 
gives us an idea of the character of St. Paul, a man willing 
to follow God. Continuing, Mr. Henderson told us of the 
importance of character in our lives. He told us two stories 
to illustrate his point; the first concerned Emily Frazer's 
father, Alexander Frazer. This story began just after 
Alexander envisaged the great opportunities and fortune 
which awaited him, if he were to travel to America. Frazer 
finally persuaded a captain in Glasgow to let him work his 
way to America on his ship. Upon his arrival in Boston, 
Frazer was told that there were sufficient vacancies for his 


trade of carpentry. However, the vacancies in Boston were 
for making circular stair cases which he had never done. 
With his strong determination, he rented a small room, and 
worked day and night on plans for this type of stair. His 
effort was rewarded, and he soon had a thriving business. 
His success was due to his will power, grim determination 
and strength of character. The speaker then explained that 
Frazer's success came only because of his self-confidence 
and his enthusiasm which urged him on. Without these 
qualities, Mr. Henderson argued that this man probably 
would never have achieved success in his field. 

The other story to illustrate character and its import- 
ance concerned a question asked of a U.S. General. The 
question was "What kind of a man do you want for the 
Armed forces?" The general replied, "What we need are 
men with wisdom and strong moral character who are in- 
terested in the preservation of world peace." The Reverend 
Mr. Henderson went on to explain the character of the Lord. 
Jesus, he said, was a man, who was sent by God, to fulfill 
the word of God. He encountered much hostility and dis- 
appointment, yet he died faithful to God. 

Mr. Henderson then related the many places of Christ's 
life, which illustrate perfectly the character of a man who 
knows death awaits him on the cross, yet follows the will 
of God to the end. Hence we understand the meaning of 
Christ's words as written by St. Paul the Apostle "Lo, I am 
come to do thy will, O God!" 


On Sunday, February 26, Dr. Moffat Woodside, Dean 
of University College, addressed the School at evening 
Chapel. Dr. Woodside took as an illustration a summer he 
spent in the isolated northland during the 1920's. Water 
was the only local means of transportation. To travel safely, 
one must know the waters of the area well. Dr. Woodside 
had charge of the motor launch, and thus was faced with 
a big responsibility. 


One day Dr. Woodside overheard an old-timer remark- 
ing that no one could learn where all the shoals were but 
could easily find out where the shoals weren't. This phi- 
losophy may be readily applied to life. If you find out where 
the rocks aren't, you won't be affected by changing water 

There are many parts of the Old Testament which are 
akin to this. Things are pointed out that you should not 
do but these in time get obsolete. In the New Testament, 
Jesus outlined what we should do and he based everything 
on Love. Love is the key to a good life. "God so loved the 
world that he gave his only begotten son." This reference 
shows very clearly what Jesus was trying to explain. Love 
must be unselfish to be a Christian love. Jesus stated that 
love is not a mark of weakness but is possible only to the 
great and strong. 

Without love we are nothing; of faith, hope, and love, 
the greatest is love. If we follow this well-defined course, 
we shall sail smoothly through life. 


In Sunday evening Chapel on March 4, the Rev. Ken- 
neth Scott took the example of Tynadall Bristoll to illustrate 
how one man can influence many other people. 

When this man arrived in India, there were many new 
ideas which he had to grasp. Dishonesty was prevalent, 
and tragedies were regarded as amusing, with the result 
that no one aided unlucky people in distress. Mr. Bristoll 
saw that the boys in the school he founded could only be 
taught by example — as Jesus taught us. He went swimming 
in the river to prove that there were no evil spirits present, 
and also he taught them to play soccer with a cow-hide ball, 
which was against their religion. Thus his ideals became the 
ideals of the boys. 

We also are influenced by many people and events in 
our lives, but how may we be influenced by God? We were 


told that through the influence of the church, prayer, the 
Bible and the sacraments, God reveals himself to us in his 
full glory. Mr. Scott concluded by quoting the words of St. 
Paul, "Let this mind be in you which was in Jesus Christ." 


March 11th, 1956 

On Sunday, March 11, with Easter Day approaching, 
the School heard a very inspiring address by the Head- 
master. Sometimes, one is likely to think of this time as 
one for holidays rather than considering the deeper Chris- 
tian meaning associated with it. Our thoughts are too often 
full of non-essentials. One day in Chapel the speaker heard 
a voice coming from behind the altar as if it was God him- 
self speaking behind the curtain. It seemed to be saying 
that these boys here at School could be shining lights in 
their generation but that this influence must come from 
deep meditation, devotion, and prayer. 

The other night late, I was standing near the lectern 
when all was quiet and it flashed into my mind that in three 
short weeks we would be celebrating Easter day, the most 
momentous happening in history, especially when one con- 
siders all that went before and came after, an event that 
has had more impact on the lives of men than any other 
happening. How quickly, I thought, it seems to have come 
after Christmas, that other miraculous happening. And 
then I began to feel that so many of us think of these days 
as holidays, time to enjoy ourselves, and fail almost entirely 
to give the thought and feeling to them that the first Chris- 
tians did, or indeed the same awe and reverence which so 
many tens of thousands have given since those moving days 
nearly two thousand years ago. It seemed to me that we 
were stuffing our lives full of non essentials: should not a 
School like this dwell much more seriously on all the details 


of Christ's life and teaching instead of just having short 
daily Chapel services, much of which fails to go beneath 
the surface of many boys. 

I began to wonder how we could give our hearts and 
minds much more deeply to the life which is acknowledged 
by so many millions to be the one way for us to go, so much 
more important really than our ordinary classroom work, 
or our games, or our many other daily interests. 

All this I was thinking when suddenly I heard a 
voice, low and soft, yet clear, a mellow rounded note: I 
stood still, rather frightened, and kept quiet. "Don't be 
afraid," it said, "I just want to talk to you about your boys." 
I was sure that someone was playing a joke, it must be the 
boy who usually studies in the vestry, and he was hiding 
behind the dossal curtain. I said nothing for a moment, 
indeed I was so startled I did not think of any remark to 
make. The sanctuary lights were on and there certainly 
did not seem to be anyone behind the curtain. "You see I 
know these boys so well," the voice went on, "and I care 
deeply for them, each one of them. You were thinking just 
now that many of them could lead the world to peace and 
goodwill and pure happiness, could be shining lights in 
their generation, and I agree with you, for you see I had 
something to do with making them and I hid some of my- 
self in each one of them. I am always watching to see if 
any of them find me, and how thrilled I am if they do." 

Now I knew who it was speaking to me, "Is it really 
you," I said, "the Lord to whom we pray? Can it really 
be you?" 

"Just now," the voice went on, "you have been feeling 
that you have not diligently led your boys along the right 
way, many of them; indeed, you feel most of them are not 
deeply moved by your rather routine attempt to show them 
the way of Jesus. That is true ; too many of you are shutting 
me up in this Chapel, lovely as it is, and even here you do 
not come close enough to me. Even Christmas and Easter 
are just moments for most of you, they do not fill your 


hearts and minds for any length of time. How then can I 
help you if you shut me out of your hearts? I stand at the 
door and knock but you do not often let me in. Other worldly 
interests, the daily round of time tables and sports and 
clubs and cadets, so many busynesses and excitements choke 
me out of your lives and blot out the real meaning and 
significance of the Child in the Manger and the Christ on 
the Cross. 

You are right, my people in this land are still children 
delighting in play things. I see so many of you spending 
all your best years on earth collecting expensive toys and 
paying others fantastic sums just to amuse you. And how 
you love to live in luxury, no hardship, no trouble, no toil 
should come near you. You keep busy inventing mechanical 
slaves to do everything for you and some day you will not 
have to move a muscle from the cradle to the grave. Will 
that be the perfect life on earth, do you think? Still water 
becomes stagnant and breeds slime. Is that your ideal? 
Remember that a cistern contains, but a fountain overflows. 

Such large numbers of my people in this land have 
found more than their share of this world's goods and yet 
they go on trying to get more and more and more. They 
are not satisfied unless they can get more than anyone 
else — then they think they are really powerful and can be- 
have like potentates of old. Children and Toys, Children 
and Toys, nothing lasting, nothing eternal, and precious 
little thought of all my millions who have less than they 
need to maintain health of body and mind. 

Is it really true that my people in this land of America 
spend five hundred times more on regaling themselves with 
strong drink, nicotine, cosmetics, gambling and other 
luxuries than they do in feeding and clothing the poor? 
Tell me, is that true?" 

I trembled under this accusation and faltered out the 
words, "I have heard it said that it is true; we have indeed 
been blinded by the glitter of our gold and all those treasures 
you placed in our earth, for the good of all". 


"My people, my people," came the Voice quietly again, 
"how they err and go astray. Did not I send my son to show 
you the way? Did he believe life on this earth meant trying 
every day to fill the money bags more full? Did he ever 
try to get anything for himself? Would he lock away one 
teaspoon of butter for himself and you have hundreds of 
thousands of pounds locked away from the hungry. Would 
he keep one morsel of bread for himself, and you people 
have hundreds of millions of bushels of wheat hidden away 
from the starving. These things worry me. 

"But we were talking of these boys. You know I am 
always hopeful that the new generation will keep to the 
high road of life more faithfully than their elders, but so 
often they are led astray; they follow their own weaker 
desires, and they listen to me only now and then. I have 
seen so many groups of boys, so many schools, and it seems 
to me that this is an especially promising group, so full of 
enthusiasm, anxious to do their best, seeking help and every 
now and then I see some of them stretching out farther, 
looking off to the hills, nourishing their ideals and their 
vision. They could do so much for my people. But they 
must strengthen the weak places in themselves." 

"Tell me," I said, "what are our worst failings — we 
should like to correct them before they become habits." 

"I put my thoughts into your minds," said the Voice, 
"but you stifle them with layers of tinsle and trifle. Material 
desire, delights of the flesh are strong in earlier years and 
my enemy Satan knows how to use them cleverly as lures. 
So many of my children are deceived, and though they may 
look loyal and faithful to me I see under the skin and 
know that some of them are Satan's fellow travellers." 

"Are there many of us like that," I asked nervously. 

"Not many," he said, "but there are some who are 
close to being caught. The old devil is persuasive and talks 
of being young only once, and having pleasure while you 
can, and looking out for yourself because no one else will, 
and all those old enticements. Deceits and fakes, but they 
still fool some. 


"There is much to be admired in these boys, their 
loyalty for instance, their sense of fair play, their willing- 
ness to think of the other fellow, their tolerance and their 
sympathy. The loyalty I look for above everything else is 
the loyalty to my Son and to me for it is eternal, it is life 
giving, it knows no bounds, and it brings true happiness. 

I see you all every day in my house and hear your 
promises and your prayers, but then I look in your hearts 
and minds and find the prayers have not gone further 
than the lips or ears. 

Sometimes I think silent prayer and quiet meditation 
makes it easier for you to understand my thoughts and my 
advice. But very few of you come here alone to think, to 
meditate, to pray. 

There is something in youth which reminds me of the 
spring I send every year to the earth. New growth, bubbling 
springs (are some just babbling springs?), brightness and 
clearness not yet dulled by the soot of the older world, 
excitement, keenness, days too short for all there is to do. 
But you were asking me about failings. 

Well there are always some who don't use their talents 
to the full. Tell them I gave them these abilities to use and 
to increase; I am always watching to see which ones make 
the most of their talents and multiply them. They will be 
worth keeping an eye on. The purpose of education, it used 
to be said, was to make good men. Now so many seem to 
think that the purpose of education is to make good, and 
take any short cut they can to that end." 

There was not a sound for a moment and then suddenly 
a dog growled right beside me. I looked quickly and saw 
the curtain move as if a breath of wind had caught it. 

"Oh, I said, "I hope you don't mind, I had forgotten 
that my little black dog had followed me. 

"My son," came the Voice, "all creatures are mine and 
they have a purpose; they respond to friendliness and love, 
and without imderstanding your words they know what is 
in your heart, as humans do too. 


That little bark did not disturb me, you see he is quiet 
now: I was thinking about your first question concerning 
Easter and those telling hours before and after. 

I find these boys really do think about lasting things 
sometimes but not for long enough. They seldom let me 
grasp them by the hand and help them. They feel they 
should be able to look after themselves. But even Jesus 
needed me constantly." 

Tell me, Lord, what I should say to these boys? What 
do you feel is most important for them to learn? 

"Remind them that I am in them and beside them, 
each one of them, always ready to help. It is not so much 
the active evil of Satan which hides me from them; it is 
the constant little busyness which lies like a fog and hides 
me from them. All through their day, in their work and 
games, they could be conscious of me. Really, you know, 
education to be worthy of the name must be rooted and 
grounded in the great principle's of Christ's life. 

It is hard to find the precious pearl when the treasure 
chest of the heart and mind are stuffed full of odds and 

Keep reminding them that my spirit is in them, the 
spirt of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel 
and strength, the spirit of knowledge and true Godliness." 

"Yes we have reminded them of that, I think. You 
know. Lord, we should so much like to see you more clearly, 
to know that you are real and not a name only. Some boys 
say they would like a proof of it." 

"My dear Mortal Man," came the Voice, "that seems to 
be the spirit of this age. Because I have allowed many of 
my material secrets to be known, for, I hoped, the benefit 
of man, because of that, man now asks for proof of every- 
thing; like Thomas he wants to see me and touch me before 
he will really believe in me. Tell those boys and yourself 
that I am here and everywhere, I am to-day and yesterday 
and tomorrow, I am in all knowledge, all beauty, truth and 
goodness; millions of mortal men from time immemorial 


have know me, though often in part, but when they are 
faithful and believing, they know me more and more fully 
and they grow in grace. 

I have made man's life a brief span at first, a second 
in the womb of time, but it is a testing time; how will he 
use his talents how will he live these short years? If my 
spirit is in him as I have said, and he finds it, and uses it, 
nothing will be impossible for him, and he will be given 
greater deeds to perform. Then, after this life, for those 
who are ready comes the time for complete fulfilment, not 
bounded by time or space, knowing all, loving all, in free- 
dom and perfect peace and happiness 

Tell these young and active souls to whom facts and 
material things mean so much, tell them that they can find 
me if they keep trying and they will know me not by sight 
but by an inner deep feeling which goes beyond their under- 
standing or human explanation. 

They like to win but they have never seen a win, they 
seek for truth but they have never seen truth, they look 
forward to holidays but they have never seen a holiday, 
they cherish friendship and love but they have never seen 
friendship or love; they have seen only evidence of these 
things: and so it is with me. 

Many find me at Christmas and Easter, others at times 
of deep sorrow, others when they feel adrift on a strong 
sea and they hear Christ calling to them. 

If they want to find me they can by listening to me, 
by learning of me from Jesus, and by devoting themselves 
to Him and His teachings. Tell them that story of Temple 
and the students." 

And with that the Voice ceased and all was quiet again. 
I waited some time but somehow I knew the message had 
come to an end and I went to turn out the lights. Devotion, 
complete devotion, that was it, that was what was needed, 
more than love as we interpret it; complete and selfless 
devotion so that our everyday life is coloured by our deep 
desire to win over our failings and lead the good life, the 


really abundant life, the life God hopes we may be strong 
enough to live. 

And then I recalled His desire that you should know 
that incident in the ministry of William Temple, not long 
ago Archbishop of York and then of Canterbury, one of 
the most influential Christian leaders of all time. (Here 
the Headmaster told the story of Archbishop Temple's 
mission at Oxford and the singing of the hymn, "When I 
survey the Wondrous Cross.") 

Dr. Ketchum described a mission taken by William 
Temple which involved a gathering of two to three thousand 
people. On the last night of this mission the Church was 
crowded and towards the end of the service those gathered 
were loudly singing Hymn No. 593. For the last verse Temple 
asked these singers to read it instead, as it had great depth 
of meaning, which he wanted them to consider. 

Then the School turned to Hymn 593 and together sang 
the words — 

Were the whole realm of nature mine. 

That were an offering far too small; 

Love so amazing, so divine. 

Demands my soul, my life, my all. 


On Simday, March 18, Canon Lawrence spoke to the 
School in evening Chapel. 

"For thou hast redeemed me." 

The Chaplain opened his sermon with these words and 
told us that they are from a part of the "late at night" 
prayers that have been said for hundreds of years in many 
languages. These words may be found in the book of Psalms, 
Chapter 31, verse five. 

These are soothing words, we were told, as if the night's 
rest is perhaps a taste of what we are closer to with the 
passing of each day. 


The word "redeem" is not used now as much as it used 
to be. For example, if one, in ancient days, had a debt that 
he could not pay then his son might be taken as payment. 
But a friend might pay off this debt and redeem your son 
for you. Then you would be happy. 

Slaves in the British West Indies were redeemed by the 
British government as were the slaves in the United States 
redeemed by a long and arduous war. 

The Chaplain told us of a negro minister who at a dinner, 
when asked to give a speech, thanked God for letting him 
live as a free man. He asked God that other people may 
be freed as he had been redeemed. 

We heard of Our Lord referred to as the "Redeemer" 
through the influence and effect of Christian teachings on 
the lives of men. 

People have learned to trust God. 

Perhaps we can form the habit of saying prayers and 
eventually trusting God; he will listen to us and redeem us. 

If one says not only prayers that petition for some- 
thing but more truthful prayers of adoration then one is 
coming closer to real worship. With the habit of saying 
prayers formed, one finds that in time he will have put 
many, many thoughts into his praying and will become a 
better Christian. 


On Saturday, March 24, the annual T.C.S. Confirmation 
Service took place in the Memorial Chapel. At seven-thirty 
the service began with the processional, "Immortal, invisible 
God only wise." The congregation then sat down and the 
choir sang the introit, "I lift my heart to thee." The order 
of confirmation was read after which Canon Lawrence pre- 
sented the candidates for confirmation. The preface was 
read by Canon Boulden, the former Housemaster of the 
Junior School, and the Headmaster. The choir then sang 
hymn 480, "Come, Holy Ghost, our souls inspire." Bishop 


Wilkinson then questioned the candidates, and after their 
responses, he offered a prayer. There followed the laying 
on of hands during which the choir sang "Just as I am thine 
own to be." The Bishop's address which followed developed 
the topic of this world being a world of symbol. He ex- 
plained that every trade had a trademark; the University 
of Toronto has one just as has the Christian faith. The 
symbol of the Christian faith, he explained, was the cross, 
Christ's symbol of victory over death. Also the letters found 
on many altars, IHS, are symbolic of Christ for they are 
the first three letters in Greek of the name Jesus. A more 
sacred symbol of Christ, the Bishop explained, were the 
wounds in the body of Christ. The symbols of a Christian, 
the Bishop went on to say, are, first, his name; second, the 
verses; third, his church; and fourth, his pledges to the 
service. Then the Bishop explained that for these spiritual 
realities one must have a proper upbringing and be taught 
what is right and wrong. When the Holy Spirit is present 
in people there is love, freedom, and friendship. We belong 
to one organization or institution through which we express 
our belief in God. As the hymn "The Church's One Founda- 
tion" implies, we know that its foundation was God and 
Christ. In finishing off, Bishop Wilkinson stressed the fact 
that the church needed more young men to carry out the 
ministry and follow God. Then referring back to the pas- 
sage that the Headmaster read in the Preface, he said that 
it meant that men should grow up and follow the cross, 
have it as their symbol. As a final conclusion. Bishop Wil- 
kinson stressed the fact that to be a good Christian we 
must observe the following rules: 

1, Regular prayer; 2, Read the Bible; 3, Go to Church; 
4, Receive Holy Communion; 5, Render personal service to 
the Church and 6, Give money to the Church. 

The choir then sang the anthem "Direct us O Lord," by 
Sir Herbert Blewer. The offertory hymn was followed by 
the vesper during which the choir moved from the Chapel 
with the Recessional, "Lift up Your Hearts!" The next day 
there was a celebration of the Holy Communion in which 


the parents and candidates celebrated Communion along 
with the rest of the School. 

The candidates to be presented this year were : Balfour, 
Band, Barbour ii, Bogert, Braden, Brainerd, Burton, Col- 
man, G. L., Davies, Denny, Empey, Gordon ii. Hart, Henning, 
Hodgetts D. N., Hope, Ketchum N. F. J., Kirkpatrick, 
Leather, Nager, Richards, Rubbra, Rutley, Spencer, Strat- 
ton, Tottenham, Towle and Wigle ii. 


On Sunday, April 15, the Reverend A. E. Mackenzie, 
principal of Albert College, gave the sermon in evening 
Chapel. The subject of his sermon was modern man's re- 
sponse to life. There are three ways in which we can re- 
spond. The first is in a spirit of rebellion. Byron was a case 
of this. He was a genius yet all through his life, he was 
in a state of rebellion both in his writings and with his 
friends and family. The second response is that of resigna- 
tion. These people are stoics who believe that everything 
has been pre-ordained and that we must accept God's will. 
The third and best response is that of reconciliation. This 
is to offer a glad response to what life brings us. 

God has guided our destiny. We can discern that God 
has been working in our life. For our good and his glory, 
God overrules evil. A reconciliation with God is the best 
response to life, as Jesus pointed out when he said, "not my 
will, but thine, be done." 

There is a challenge in modern life. Thousands of 
children are needy and homeless. What is their response 
to life? Surely it will be one of resignation or rebellion 
unless someone helps them. The solution of all the world's 
problems can be found in reconciliation to the Christian 
religion. Unless we show people that reconciliation is the 
best response to life, then our problems in life and in the 
world will get bigger. Thus by showing others the way of 
the cross in reconciliation with Christ, we make our finest 
response to God's will. 



On Sunday, April 29, Canon F. J. Nicholson, rector of 
St. Michael and All Angels Church in Toronto, spoke in 
Chapel. He began by quoting the familiar words, "Play up, 
play up, and play the game." Canon Nicholson went on to 
say that all the lessons of honesty and good sportsmanship 
which are learned on the playing field apply equally well 
to the game of life. He said that the Christian game has 
many of the characteristics of any sport. 

First, he said that a good sport puts all he has into 
the game no matter what his ability may be. He stressed 
the fact that any sport's primary objective is to produce 
men rather than stars. It is the same in the Christian 
game, he told us. Everyone should put his whole life into 
the Christian game. Furthermore, he said, the Christian 
game is a perpetual game. The lessons we learn in Chapel 
or church apply to our everyday life as well as to our re- 
ligious life. 

Secondly, Canon Nicholson stated that a good sport 
plays the game according to the rules. Thus it is in the 
Christian game. Everyone should observe the rules of the 
Church as laid down in the Catechism, and observe the vows 
made for us in Baptism, which we accepted in Confirma- 

Lastly, Canon Nicholson said that today, most athletes 
compete against a standard of ability. The same is true in 
the Christian game. He stressed the fact that we should 
not compare ourselves with our neighbours and pronounce 
ourselves better or worse than they. Rather, he said, we 
should only compare ourselves with the highest standard, 
that of Jesus Christ. 

In conclusion, Canon Nicholson reviewed these three 
necessities for playing the Christian game and urged us 
to observe them to the best of our ability and to play the 
Christian game as a good sport should. 




Christopher Crowe ('41-'46) has been awarded an Ex- 
hibition of 1851 Scholarship which will enable him to attend 
Cambridge University for two years. It is the first time a 
Western student has won this coveted scholarship in 
academic science and the School sends its most sincere con- 
gratulations to Kit. 

At T.C.S. Kit had an excellent record and after he left 
he taught in a country school for a year before entering 
the University of Western Ontario. He graduated at Wes- 
tern in Honour Mathematics and Science in 1952; he then 
began work for his doctorate and he has lately been pursuing 
research work in heat flow with geophysical applications. 
During his university career he has won many honours in- 
cluding scholarships from the National Research Council 
in Ottawa and the Research Council of Ontario. 

The Scholarship he has now won, has no fixed amount 
in monetary reward but it assures the recipient of having 
no financial worries during his years in England. It is more 
competitive than a Rhodes Scholarship as only two are 
awarded annually in the whole of Canada, and in addition 
the winner may study anywhere he wishes and the financial 
return is greater. 

The School is extremely proud of Crowe's success. 



As an occasion to honour the School's winter athletes 
of first team cahbre, a large group of masters and boys, 
including two J.S. representatives of their hockey team and 
residents of James House, gathered in the Hall on Friday 
evening, April 29, to enjoy the much appreciated hockey 
dinner. After a very large and equally delicious dinner, the 
Headmaster gave a brief resume on the season of the Big- 
side hockey team. This year, with Long as captain and 
Outerbridge, vice-captain, the team was congratulated on 
being one of the very best the School has ever had and 
the game as a whole showing great development both in 
organization and skills since the early days of the School. 
Originally the boys skated on Duck harbour on the edge 
of Lake Ontario just below the School. After the first 
indoor rink was burnt in the fire of 1928, the old town rink 
was used. Now with the present Memorial Rink, the team 
has certainly done the School justice. 

Following the Headmaster's talk, Ed Long commented 
briefly on the fine season, admirable spirit and excellent 
coaching that the team had had throughout the term. After 
being presented with a gift as a token of the team's appre- 
ciation, Mr. Humble replied, thanked the team for its 
present to him, and commented on the fine group of players 
he so willingly coached this year. 

Overholt, the captain of the gym team, then congrat- 
ulated the gym group for its very hard work and fine spirit 
throughout the season and thanked Mr. Armstrong for all 
his time and energy spent. 

Then the captain of swimming. Bob Ferrie, was called 
upon to say a word. He took this opportunity to express 
on behalf of the entire team thanks to Mr. Hodgetts for 
the work he did to make the season a success and to im- 
prove so much the boys' swimming and diving skills. 

Finally, Mr. Cayley, who for thirteen years has been 
associated with the School and is at present a master in the 


J.S., presented several ideas on the significance and im- 
importance of the J.S. teams which provide a grounding for 
the future Bigside boys in the S.S. BUs remarks became 
very humorous when he reminisced about several experi- 
ences of present Bigside players when they were on J.S. 
teams. His talk ended on an important and earnest note. 
We were reminded of our obligation to support in future 
years the School which at present and in former years has 
given so much to us all. 

Before the Headmaster adjourned the dinner, three 
ringing cheers were called for the appreciation of Mrs. 
Clarke and her deserving kitchen staff. 


It was indeed a great privilege to have Mr. Geoghegan, 
an expert on Hammond organs, come to the School on 
Monday, April 16, and gave us a brief but enjoyable recital 
of organ music. For his first piece, Mr. Geoghegan chose 
a movement from Handel's "Water-music," which was 
followed by two pieces composed by Bach: "Jesus, Joy of 
Man's Deserving" and "Fugue in D Major." In explaining 
a fugue, the organist said that it was a piece in which the 
tunes come in one by one and the congregation goes out 
two by two. The next selection was the "Serenade No. 1" 
by "Johnny" Hackin, followed by Siegfried Karg-Elert's 
"Triumphal March." The next piece was "Rosimay" by 
Vaughn- Williams and finally a Tocatta by the blind French 
composer, Louis Viene. This man was one of the originators 
of the modern school and he introduced modern harmonies 
into his works. As Viene's wife got more disagreeable his 
works in harmony became more acidulous. The piece played 
by Mr. Geoghegan was written near the end of Viene's 

We greatly appreciated Mr. Geoghegan's recital and 
we were only sorry to see him rush off to Bowmanville for 


another engagement. However, he really did have to rush 
as, he told us, he had to change into evening clothes in 
the back of the car on the way. 


The Saturday evening of April 28 was enjoyably spent 
at the Cobourg Opera House where the entire School heard 
the fine concert given by the Hart House String Orchestra. 
The talented musicians were admirably led by Mr. Boyd 
Neel, through selections from the works of five different 
composers. The opening work was a Handel's "Concerto" 
which consisted of four parts, each well contrasted to dis- 
play the range this composer possessed. Following this was 
the St. Paul's Suite, by Hoist, an English music master at 
St. Paul's, who wrote it as an exercise for some of his 
students. The suite, particularly the well-known Dargason, 
was played with considerable gusto and was applauded in 
like manner. 

"Variations on a Theme by Tchaikowsky" was next. 
This clever collection was composed by Arensky, a Russian. 
Evidently, the original theme was based on a children's 
legend and all seven of the movements had their own 
original twist, providing a very enjoyable end to the first 
part of the concert. 

Following the intermission, a number of lively dance 
tunes under the title of "Capriol Suite" were played . These 
dances were by Warlock, an English composer who must 
have had quite an imagination. Benjamin Britten, a prom- 
inent British modernist, next contributed some of his 
popular music. Actually it was composed of a number of 
simple tunes, conjured up when he was nine years old. He 
later adapted them to the violin to form the attractive 
"Simple Symphony." 

One part of this, the "Playful Pizzicato", rated an encore 
after four well-deserved curtain calls and attested the 
interest of the audience. 



On April 20, Dr. Fackenheim of the University of 
Toronto gave the sixth form an introduction to the basic 
concepts of philosophy. We interpret this word as the 
act of asking a radical question, and then answering it by 
reasoning only. For example, consider a mass of radium. 
Duiing a certain period of time the mass of this substance 
decreases, and energy is given off. Where has this mass 
gone which has been liberated? Next we have the example 
of the human body which devours air and food. Do these 
substances we have taken on turn into our own structure, 
and thus change our individual make-up every time we eat? 

After citing these examples of physical change. Dr. 
Fackenheim went straight to a basic question which must 
be solved to give us an understanding of any physical trans- 
formation. What is the origin of all matter? 

Thales thought that water was the basic ingredient of 
the world, since life could not exist without it. Later 
Heraclitus stated his views on the subject — that every sub- 
stance was composed of fire and was constantly changing. 
Only the law controlling change stands firm. 

Another great problem which must be solved is the 
difference between permanence and change. Suppose a man 
had a sock which constantly needed mending. At what 
stage of repair does the sock change into its mended coun- 
terpart? Is there a part of an acorn in the tree it produces? 
Thus we see how in many branches of science and meta- 
physics there lie many unexplored twigs. Dr. Fackenheim 
ended by saying that perhaps we should make a differentia- 
tion between a scientist and a philosopher. A scientist knows 
more and more about less and less, and a philosopher? Yes, 
he knows less and less about more and more. 



When third form heard that Mrs. Davidson was coming 
to the School to speak on the Middle East they immediately 
offerered to build her a map for her talk. After consulting 
many different people they decided to build it on quarter- 
board and for the moulding substance they would use a 
mixture of four parts of asbestos and one part of plaster 
of paris. For six weeks they worked, spending many hours 
of their spare time on it. When the map was finished it 
looked like a professional job. It was in three-dimension 
with vegetation, boundaries, cities, and rivers clearly marked 
on it. The map was a great help to Mrs. Davidson in illus- 
trating her talk. It now hangs in the History room where 
it is of great use and admired by everybody. 


Dr. Moffat Woodside, dean of arts at University College, 
Toronto, spoke to a group of the sixth form after dinner 
on Sunday, February 26. He answered questions concerning 
the various arts courses, student activities and general 
university life. One of his main points was that each boy 
should follow his own interests in choosing a course at 
university and not pick one solely on the merits of the job 
it would get. Dean Woodside also pointed out the differences 
between an honours course and a general course and how 
one could change from one to another. The boys also re- 
ceived a few points on what the law courses consisted of 
and how the Law School compared to Osgoode Hall. 

We should like to thank Dean Woodside very much for 
speaking to us as it is a great help to talk to someone so 
intimately connected with the University. 



On Tuesday, March 13, the School was honoured by a 
visit from Dr. Healey Willan. The well-known composer 
and musician gave the School, as a group, its first introduc- 
tion to the old type of music, Plainsong. The Headmaster 
gave a brief talk on Dr. Willan's achievements both as an 
organist, choirmaster and as a composer of many well- 
known pieces including some of the music used at the Coro- 
nation. Dr. Willan directs the choir at St. Mary Magdalene 
in Toronto and thus he is an authority on the organization 
of a big choir. 

In his explanation of Plainsong, Dr. Willan pointed out 
that it was not plain and simple but was merely a system 
of singing prose. Plainsong, he explained, was unpopular 
with both the choir and congregation because it "gave more 
Glory to God than to the Choir." He then proceeded to 
teach the School how to use this type of music, choosing 
the psalms as an example. 

The School is deeply grateful to Dr. Willan and his 
accompanist, Mr. Finch, for coming down from Toronto to 
speak to us. From the plainsong renditions of several well- 
known phrases which floated down the halls after his visit 
we know that he was much appreciated. 


On Monday, March 16, Mrs. Davidson made her annual 
visit to the School. She spoke on the vast problems of the 
Near East and their possible solutions in her interpreta- 
tion. First, she pointed out the causes for friction. 

The Asian world is trying to break through a barrier 
of resentment that has been built up through the ages 
largely by the west and known as the Asian Revolution. It 
was started during the First World War and will probably 
now continue for five generations. 


This area is strategically important. It is a junction 
of land masses and great bodies of water. At the same 
time it has great economic importance because of oil. The 
West, Russia and the countries of the Near East want to 
control the development of this oil. This causes great 

Due to increased nationalism, each nation wants to 
be top dog. Israel is only seven years old having been 
created by the United Nations in 1948. The other coun- 
tries resent its presence and border incidents between Israel 
and Egypt are common. 

Egypt has been free from British control for just over 
a year. She is anxious to make use of her new freedom 
and make herself into the most powerful nation. To do 
this she must build a large army; for this she needs arms 
and equipment. The United States refused to supply Egypt 
with arms so when Russia offered arms in exchange for 
cotton, Egyptians jumped at the chance. Thus Russia has 
technicians and pilots in Egypt to teach their forces the 
use of Russian arms and planes. 

Saudi Arabia has been buying arms from the United 
States to use either against Israel or the British oasis at 
Buraimi which has great resources of oil. Hence Mrs. David- 
son pointed out that the near Eastern problem boils down 
to a struggle between the West and Russia. Who can make 
the most friends and help the peoples develop their coun- 
tries, thus winning their friendship? Russia has a trade 
attraction, she has arms and needs all the raw materials 
she can get. Britain and the United States are not closely 
enough allied to effectively counter the Russians and win 
over the Arab nations to our camp. Moreover, they do not 
have the markets for foreign goods. 

Mrs. Davidson pointed out that in the future we must 
pour engineers, technicians and money into these countries 
in order to develop their resources and help raise their 
standard of living to a par with ours. A major project 
envisaged is the Aswan power development on the Nile. We 


must put some of our own sweat and not just money into 
these projects; only then can we keep our ideals of freedom 
and democracy vital and alive. 

Mrs. Davidson painted for us a gloomy picture which 
will take a lot of hard work and sacrifice to restore. We 
have the power and the men; only the future will tell 
whether we have the ambition. 


On Tuesday, March 27, the sixth form gathered to- 
gether in the assembly room to hear a few words by Captain 
Tindell about his work with Inter- Varsity Christian Fellow- 
ship. The Headmaster introduced him and told us about his 
life. After attending Winchester Public School in England, 
Captain Tindell served in the army for 11 years. At the end 
of this period he rose to become a Captain in the British 
Dragoon Guards. In the last of this military service he 
served in Korea for one year. He resigned his position 
there and came to Canada at the end of last summer. He 
is now working in Canada and the U.S.A. with University 
students for I.V.C.F. 

In an informal talk Captain Tindell then described the 
work which I.V.C.F. is doing and the purpose for which 
it exists particularly at the Universities. High School stu- 
dents, he said, have individual guidance, but at College, 
students are left to their own devices, become more in- 
dependent, and are intrusted with more responsibility. 
Often it is there that important questions arise such as, 
"What are we here for?" and "Where are we going?" 
Christians should know that there are other guides to life 
than reason and appetite. As there is a great challenge in 
this idea and in Christianity, the conviction of I.V.C.F. is 
to present to interested students the Christian ideals and let 
them see if they have something to offer. I.V.C.F. at least 
offers a chance for students to examine and think about the 
Christian Gospel. It is everyone's responsibility to examine 


this message at least. For it may, and likely will, govern 
one's life. At I.V.C.F. meetings, students gather together 
to think through and learn responsibility in, and to respond 
to, Christianity. I.V.C.F, provides freshman receptions to 
enable them to know the purpose of I.V.C.F. We were told 
about the Campus in the Woods, a summer camp managed 
by Inter- Varsity, to promote Christian education, to know 
God and make Him known, as well as provide healthful 
recreation and Christian fellowship. After this interesting 
talk several questions were asked regarding further details 
of I.V.C.F. meetings and what was discussed at them. 

Immediately following these questions many stayed 
behind to have a group discussion concerning their ques- 
tions and problems connected with Christianity. Everyone 
was most appreciative for the help which Captain Tindell 
gave and for the information which he shared. 


On April 9 the long awaited School dance took place. 
At four o'clock Monday afternoon the various couples started 
arriving at the School and the girls were lodged in the 
Junior School. A buffet supper was served later in the after- 
noon and at seven-fifteen a short Chapel service was held. 

The decorations, so ably designed and produced by 
Rusty Dunbar and Doug Higgins, were very effective. On 
entering the Hall, in which the dance was held, one was 
immediately under the impression that they were aboard 
a pirate ship. Drawings of fierce pirates and pictures of 
the sea surrounded one end and at the far end of the Hall 
the illusion was further enhanced by the "rigging" that had 
been set up. One could not help but admire the large glass 
ball that soon would be spinning above the dancers and 
reflecting a myriad of coloured lights. 

The dance itself started at nine o'clock. The couples 
were met at the entrance to the Hall by Dr. and Mrs. Ket- 
chum, Mike Burns, Margo Nunns, Mac Campbell and Linda 


Sterns. An invitation to dance was then put forth by Mr. 
MacFarland and throughout the evening his orchestra pro- 
vided some very entertaining and novel music. Practically 
every type of dance was played — from Sambas to square 
dances with caller Mike Burns performing efficiently. Some 
entertaining distractions took place with a Charleston con- 
test and an elimination and spot dance. 

The sitting-out rooms were well situated and appreciated 
by all, especially room "R" with its decoration theme in the 
form of a pirate dungeon. Here, Mr. and Mrs. Smith very 
kindly looked after the refreshments and dance pins. 

Supper was served at half-past eleven and after a short 
break the dance continued until two o'clock. 

The next morning a buffet breakfast was served in the 
Junior School from ten until eleven. The gaily clad group 
then scattered to various parts of the country where many 
of the girls were introduced to the fine art of sucker fishing. 

After spending part of the day at the School, the 
dancers of the night before left to make their way home 
again. Perhaps when they got home they had time to think 
of the wonderful time they had had at what was certainly 
the most successful dance the School has had in many a 


On Sunday, April 14, Mr. Owen Jones, an Old Boy of 
the School, came and showed us a film that he took last 
summer in Jugoslavia. As an introduction he told us the 
question that most of his audiences ask: "How can one 
take pictures so easily in a communist state?" He answered 
this by saying that it was easier to take the films in that 
country than it would probably have been to go to New 
York harbour and take them. But, he pointed out, to be 
sure he could travel freely and take photographs, he got 
a letter from the Canadian Embassy in Belgrade so, when 
approached by the authorities, he was able to produce this 
letter and carry on as usual about his business. 



The actual films themselves were in colour and were 
very well done. Mr. Jones started at Belgrade and worked 
towards the coast with his camera taking pictures of the 
towns and countryside which he considered to be of interest. 
He then boarded a passenger steamer and headed along 
the Adriatic coast towards Trieste, stopping at places of 
interest in Jugoslavia until the whole country had been 
covered. These interesting and informative films brought 
out the sharp contrast between Eastern and Western culture 
in Jugoslavia. We are indebted to Mr. Jones for his very 
informative travelogue on this strategic country. 


On Friday, March 19, the School held its last formal 
debate against an outside team. The subject for debate 
"Resolved that Senior Matriculation Examinations do More 
Harm than Good," was defended by the School represented 
by Meighen, Jenkins, and Wells. They were opposed by 
three Old Boys, John Seagram, Knobby Clarke and John 
Hilton. The debate, conducted under the able mediation of 
Messrs. Scott, Brown and Gordon, was spirited and highly 

The government claimed that the present system of 
selection was outmoded, was unfair and did not allow the 
student to think for himself. The government stated that 
students are made to learn work, whether they understand 


it or not. The government also stated that it thought educa- 
tion should be fun. 

The opposition in return stated that the Senior Ma- 
triculation was not unfair to an average student who 
applied himself reasonably well to his work, nor did it pre- 
vent him from thinking for himself. The opposition con- 
sistently claimed that the government should supply a re- 
placement for the present system if they advocated its 

After the judges had recessed to consider their decision 
the chairman Campbell, called for a division of the House 
which gave the victory to the opposition. After the division, 
the debate was thrown open and several interesting speeches 
were delivered from the floor. 

After a short educational talk in the faults of each 
speaker, Mr. Brown, the head judge, awarded the debate 
to the government on the grounds that the opposition was 
not entitled to demand a replacement for the present system 
since that was outside the subject of the debate. 


The Junior Debating Society continued its activities 
during the latter part of the Lent Term, meeting practically 
every Friday night. Several spirited debates were conducted 
and many members of the society obtained debating ex- 
perience. Several debates have been held since the beginning 
of March including "Resolved that religion is dying out in 
North America" and "Resolved that outlaws of olden times 
were more daring than modern gangsters." In both cases 
the government was victorious. 

In addition to the debates, a very successful pepperpot 
was held on March 2, in which a total of twenty-six members 

Outside the regular meetings, the executive occasionally 
met in Mr. Brown's room in order to determine subjects 
for debate and the speakers. Some debates were judged by 



members of the Senior Debating Society and others by Mr. 

Once again the Junior Debating Society has had a most 
successful term and the thanks of the society are extended 
to Mr. Brown for his excellent guidance. 


During the Lent Term the Crafts Club held a carpentry 
competition. The winner of the competition will receive the 
C. Scott Award, an award in memory of Mr. C. Scott who 
did so much for woodworking in the School during his years 
as a master. 

The competition, open to all members and associate 
members, is divided into two divisions. Division "A" was 
limited to lathe work, two compulsory articles having to 
be made. Division "B" was limited to cabinet work, two 
compulsory articles also having to be made. The most pro- 
ficient carpenter in either division will receive the C. Scott 
Award plus five dollars worth of tools of his own choice. 
The most proficient carpenter in the division other than 
that from which the C. Scott Award winner is chosen will 
receive four dollars worth of tools. Also the runner-up in 
the C. Scott Award winner division will receive three dollars 
worth of tools. In addition two dollars worth of tools will 
be awarded for the best detailed plan for the construction 
of any article which would be an asset to a School room. 



On Friday, March 23, the School saw the results of 
ten weeks of rehearsals as the Dramatic Society produced 
a very polished performance of R. C. Sherriff's play, "Jour- 
ney's End," under the able direction of Mr. Scott. The per- 
formance was a great success and all felt it was worth the 
work put into it. 

Behind the scenes, Ketchum ably fulfilled the job of 
prompter and contributed a great deal to the play's success 
as did Hyde, Hodgetts, Thompson, Stockwood and Ross, the 
property men. 

In the costume department Miss Wilkin again did noble 
work and the thanks of the Society are extended to Mrs. 
Spencer, Mrs. Hodgetts, Mr. Macleod and Mr. Gordon for 
their work in the make-up department. Mr. Bishop again 
did marvellous work backstage and also produced the very 
fine scenery. 

The stage hands and the electricians are also to be 
congratulated for their very fine work for all of which the 
Society is grateful. 


Since Christmas, the Political Science Club has devoted 
its meetings to hearing addresses by chosen members of 
the club on various different outstanding figures in the world 
both past and present. 

At the first meeting after the Christmas holidays held 
on January 19, Wotherspoon i began with an address on 
Jan Christian Smuts, the South African soldier and diplomat. 
At subsequent meetings thereafter addresses have been 
delivered by Wells on David Ben Gurion, the Prime Minister 
of Israel; Derry on Mao Tze Tung; Binne on J. Robert 
Oppenheimer, the brilliant scientist; Mr. Brown on Sir 
Winston Churchill; John Vernon on Schuman; Bill Noble 
on MacDonald; FitzGerald on Plato; and Mac Campbell 
on Einstein. 


In addition to the weekly meetings, the weekly summary 
of the news of the week in the Hall has continued and several 
highly interesting and amusing summaries have been de- 



"Journey's End" by R. C. Sherriff, was this years' play, 
presented by the Trinity College Dramatic Society on 
March 23. 

The story takes place during the first World War in 
a dreary British dugout somewhere on the front lines in 

This play depends a great deal on the portrayal of the 
characters of a group of Englishmen brought up in an age 
totally different from our own and under conditions which 
boys cannot have experienced. Captain Stanhope is a magni- 
ficent leader whose nerves have been shattered by months 
on end of life in the trenches and who was becoming in- 
creasingly dependent on whiskey to carry him through. 
McNairn played the part of that fiery character with just 
the right amount of restraint. The difllcult part of Lieu- 
tenant Osborne, the very human middle-aged schoolmaster, 
was capably done by Ham. 2nd Lieutenant Raleigh, fresh 
from his public school, eager to get into the fight, and de- 
lighted to be with his idol Stanhope, was convincingly 
played by Meighen. Providing effective contrast to the 
others was Binnie with his country accent, his simple sense 
of humour, and his apparent imconcern with events around 
him. One of the most dramatic scenes in the play comes 


when the despicable Hibbert attempts to get away by feign- 
ing sickness but is prevented from doing so by Stanhope. 
This scene could easily have been over-acted, but FitzGerald 
did not allow himself to make that mistake. Derry (the bat- 
man), Noble (the Colonel), Allen (the Sergeant Major), 
Spivak (Captain Hardy) and Sutton (the German prisoner) 
all were convincing in their roles. The successful reception 
of the play by the audience was a tribute to the actors* 
ability to get "into character." 

The bulk of the load in producing the play fell on the 
direction of Mr. Scott who has without a doubt done an 
excellent job this year. Mr. Bishop did an admirable job 
on the scenery which he personally painted. He also ar- 
ranged the stage. The make-up was done by Mrs. Spencer, 
Mrs. Hodgetts, Mr. Macleod and Mr. Gordon and the cos- 
tumes by Miss Wilkin. The electricians and sound effects 
man deserve special mention this year for the terrific job 
they did in simulating shell and gun noises and the illusion 
of explosions which flashed through the door of the dugout. 
The stage hands, too, added their part to making "Journey's 
End" such an outstanding performance. 





Archibald Lampman (1861-1899) 

The warm sunshine, mingled with the whispering forest 
breezes, fiiltered down through the canopy of leaves over- 
head. It softly played upon the thin, serious face of a young 
man, languidly relaxing against the strength of a massive 
pine, pipe in hand, completely engrossed in his private 
musings. His features were regular, soft, and dreamy, 
yet radiated an intangible aura of strength. His clean, dark 
hair was smoothed back in long waves over his head, and 
just the trace of a moustache completed the impression 
which was perhaps vaguely distinguished for the end of the 
nineteenth century. 

This is, to my mind, what might have been a fleeting 
glimpse of Archibald Lampman, one of the most outstand- 
ing poets that Canada has yet produced, a true master in 
his vivid portrayal of the Canadian scene. 

In the autumn of 1861, the seventeenth of October to 
be exact, Archibald Lampman was bom in the little Ontario 
town of Morpeth in the County of Kent. There, his father 
was the rector of Trinity Church. Archibald Lampman Sr. 
was a great lover of poetry, and a poet of some merit him- 
self, and consequently, he awakened in young Archie a love 
of poetry which dominated him for the rest of his life. 

While still only a young lad, Archie left home to come 
to Trinity College School, where he spent the next few 


years of his life preparing himself to enter Trinity College 
in Toronto. While at T.C.S., he presumably did well, for in 
his final year, 1878, he was given the responsibilities of a 

In the fall of 79 he entered Trinity College, a quiet, 
serious young man, with his hitherto uncultivated poetic 
genius; for, with the exception of his father, he had never 
come into contact with literary people, people who could 
poetically stimulate and inspire him, the people he needed 
to help develop and mature his writing abihty. In fact, he 
doubted if such people existed in Canada. 

But in university, quite by chance, he happened to 
read a book of poems by the Canadian, Charles G. D. 
Roberts, and totally revised his opinion of Canada's literary 
potential. Greatly inspired, he proceeded to gather about 
him a circle of friends who were equally enthusiastic about 
cultivating Canadian poetry, and with this background, he 
began his task. 

In 1882 he graduated in his Classics course with second 
class honours, and in order to survive, attempted to teach 
school in Orangeville, but he soon left this to become a 
postal clerk in Ottawa. However, one might reasonably say 
that his real vocation was writing poetry. 

During this early part of his career, his admiration of 
John Keats was apparent in his poetic style, and later on 
William Wordsworth, too, had obvious influence. However, 
Archibald Lampman was an impressionist poet, more con- 
cerned with the sensation of a view or action, rather thaa 
with ideas which might be derived from them as Words- 
worth was. His verses containing the brooding, mystical 
quality of his Scotch ancestors, combined with the realistic 
approach of his German and Dutch forebears. 

Though Archie had a quiet, shy manner, he also had a 
ready sense of humour. What struck him as being really 
particularly funny was the incongruous and the absurd. 

He considered Greek to be the peer of all languages, 
and agreed with the ancient Greeks that a really superb 


poet must first be a man of affairs. A man who was purely 
a poet, no matter how talented he might be, would always 
be a second class poet. 

Throughout his short life, he loathed any form of 
liquor, but was completely given to smoking his pipes. He 
felt that smoking was conducive to meditation in much the 
same manner as was quiet fishing on a lonely lake. In 
this manner, he worked out and perfected many of his 

Another favourite composing trick was to take long 
walks in the country. He felt that by the steady, monot- 
onous, rhythmical beat of walking, his head was cleared 
of irrelevant thoughts, and a single worthy idea was 

His only philosophy was a simple joy in life, and more 
especially in natm-e. He had no desire for material gain, 
though he did have a thirst for fame and recognition. The 
only rather pecuhar phase of his philosophy was that he 
felt that the real remedy to all our social problems was to 
raise women so that they were on an equal social footing 
with men! 

In the month of Setember, 1887, he took Maud Playter 
to be his wife, and with her led a very happy life. They 
had three children, two boys and a girl. Tragically, one of 
his sons died a few months after birth. 

In 1894, at the age of thirty-three, Archibald Lamp- 
man felt himself losing his grip on life. As he himself 
writes, "I became morbid, subject to dreadful moods and 

His condition grew no better until, in the first months 
of 1897 he at last felt at peace with the world once again. 
But unfortunately his great period of poetic productivity 
was over. No matter how hard he tried, his physical handi- 
caps restrained him from accomplishing what he was once 
able to do. 

He became tremendously depressed as he neared the 
end of his lifetime, a fact revealed by this passage from 


one of his letters: "Someone has said that life is one long 
disease, and the world is just one gigantic hospital, with 
the Great Doctor being Death." 

However, in the end he refused to succumb to this, and 
to religion he turned as the final solution. Here he found 
peace and contentment. At this stage, he also dabbled in 
socialism, believing it to be the ultimate answer to the 
cruelty and thoughtlessness of society. 

He wrote steadily in his declining years, until his death 
on the 10th of February, 1899, at the early age of thirty- 
eight. His body was buried in the Beechwood Cemetery in 

Thus Death's curtain severed the earthly life of 
Archibald Lampman, poet extraordinary, a man who had 
devoted his entire life to Canadian literature, a man who 
portrayed our Canada in words more beautiful and vivid 
than anyone had ever done before, a man to be very, very 
proud of.

The Bethune Grape-Vine was stealing the show 

From the Big Grape-Vine — so it had to go, 

So off to Trinity Park at a rapid pace, 

For we're going to tell you about the feature race. 

"Hey Bud! — mind if I join you? It is, I always say, 
a bad thing to sit in a cozy bar by oneself, especially on a 
hot day. I don't know you and you don't know me. Mister, 
so just call me Broadway. You are wondering what I am 
doing here? — Well let me tell you." 


"It seems I am walking down Parkway minding my 
own business, when I bump into none other than Harry the 
Horse. With him is a pal called Society Jack, who says he 
is a manager of a certain horse at Trinity Park. Harry the 
Horse, who is a real smoothie, has persuaded me to come 
and see the horse, and although I only have one sawbuck, 
I agree. We arrive at the park and we go straight to the 
paddock where we see this horse — Lady Bethune's "Mighty 
Midget." The boys assure me that this is a sure fire bet, 
and Harry the Horse offers me five to one, which is a pretty 
good deal. However, I see the stable boy slinging straw 
at Society Jack, so I tell them I will think it over." 

"I am looking over the other horses when another 
bookie, shifty Stiletto Spacey, slinks up to me, glances 
furtively from under his fedora, and winks at another filly. 
The butt in his mouth waggles at me as he says he'll give 
me four to one on this sure shot. I hesitate and he clenches 
his fist around his brass knuckles, so I tell him I only have 
one sawbuck and have to think it over. But he reaches up 
and grabs my collar to hustle me off to see the manager 
of "Trainer's Lass" — Stirrupear Shaw. This cookie assures 
me doubly that I can't miss, for Old Dame Brent, the owner, 
doesn't have anything but the best. However, as I doubt 
this, and since I do not like this strong arm stuff — I fly 
the coop. I then see Harry the Horse and tell him that I 
will take his offer." 

"It seems that in no time the horses are at the gate. 
Sneakers Dunnit is on "Mighty Midget" and Thomas the 
Trotter is up on "Trainer's Lass." The bell rings, the gate 
opens and the horses break. Old Dame Brent's nag leaps 
ahead and in the back stretch is leading by three lengths. 
This is catastrophical ! But as they are rounding the bend 
Sneakers drives "Mighty Midget" on. Then I see the Trotter 
getting Boxed up, but he squeezes through by a hair. In 
the home stretch Sneakers and Trotter are frantically spur- 
ring. "Mighty Midget" surges ahead and the crowd roars 
as Lady Bethune's horse widens the gap to win by six 


lengths. Old Dame Brent's filly leads the rest of the nags 
home. The fans surge after Sneakers shouting their ap- 
proval, saying, "Yea Sneakers, ya done it." 

"Well I am so excited that 1 don't notice that villain 
Spacey sneak up and snitch my pickings — and that's why 
Mister, I'm . . . hey! He's gone! 


These jottings are mainly concerned with duty. First 
of all it is our bounden duty to compliment our assistant 
House Master on bringing his new assistant across the 
road. Now that silence reigns above, Mr. White's little helper 
has been amusing a little brunette dog after Herman intro- 
duced them one night. The chief has got a new red fire 
engine with wide seats and he often roars off -to fight fires? 
However, the ex-Brent official A.B.H. will still take on all 
comers with his four wheeled blue job. 

Secondly, it is our very bounden duty in this final term 
to march off on the right foot and try to do our best in 
everything from cadets to school work. Also when you 
"burn out" a light bulb ask A.C.S. for a new one instead 
of removing the one next door. Little things in a big house 
like ours mean a lot. 

Thirdly, with the coming of spring (?) a few live wires 
have been buzzing around connecting up speakers and the 
new radio station has begun broadcasting but the chief 
engineer says if you don't like it then flip your switch, roll 
over and go to sleep so you can get to breakfast on time. 

Lastly, as the School year becomes Record history a 
lot of boys will be going away. You who are staying, do not 
forget to carry on the Brent torch next year and in the 
years to come no matter where you are, on the playing field, 
in the classroom, in the House, and when you leave, in life! 





Voici la Grape Vine! Ecoutez encore! 
We got lots o'news an' den some more. 
Come sit wid us 'round de habitants' stove, 
When thru' de School wit words we rove. 

Dat's de nicest dance dere ever bin, 
Des femmes were cool and de lights were dim. 
Dere was jus' one ting wrong. Rusty was not 'ere. 
He burst in Guelph and could but shed a tear. 

An' dere was a guy dere, who danse de solo 

With une belle petite fille, who could go, and den go. 

Maybe in few weeks he get B.S.S. pin. 

An' den some day to de church get hauled in. 

What happen to him who was fast moving guy. 

You said he's married, maybe dat's why. 

In his place last few weeks, dere's been great goings-on. 

And to add to des cadeaux, dey give him lamp like a "Bomb." 

Spring must be here, for dere's very much wrong. 
One guy's sick for sure, he's Eddy "my Love Long." 
Un autre gargon who on lights is ver' slack 
Dey call him "le Nez," or maybe jus' Mac 

So dere's de news, de lights are low, 
We put out our pipes, for we mus' go 
'Cause early we rise for de milk de cow, 
Bon soir, nos amis, dat's all for now.

Have you ever ventured into our cell? 

It's the closest thing to being in hell. 

Various rubbish litters the floor, 

While a skull and cross-bones hangs from the door. 

He puts his work off 'til another day; 
Without a haircut he'll soon fly away. 
Some say that if he had a piano 
Or that if he could sing soprano 
Liberace would have a friend; 
Wouldn't that just be "the total end"? 

Have you ever seen the junk that's spread 

Around the floor and on his bed? 

Mr. Dening once said: 

"It looks like where the pigs are fed!" 

All the Prefects moan and sigh 
When they spy that huge knot in his tie; 
Some have called him "the real-Uve freak," 
This is my room-mate, Garth, of whom I speak. 

John will say you're a pain in the neck 
If you don't think "the greatest" is Dave Brubeck; 
Garth likes to hear Liberace play his organ 
While John is partial to J, P. Morgan. 


"Roach" and "Swilly" have both received letters 

And if I am able to find any bettors, 

I will bet my very last drop of blood, 

That these letters both came from a Lonely Hearts Club. 

"The Hairy Ape", I have been called 
I guess it's because my legs aren't bald; 
But I ask you really, what do you think. 
Don't I look much more like the Massing Link? 

If in this poem you doubt a line, 
Why not drop into our room some time; 
The four of us freaks are always here. 
Just pull up a chair and have no fear. 

This poem(?) may lack rhyme, 

But I don't pretend to be Abraham Klein ; 

And don't get me wrong from this pitiful song 

For with my room-mates there is nothing wrong. 

They are three great guys, 

Not Russian spies, 

And should be treated as such. 

Do I Hke them — "no not much"! 




In yesteryear, our pioneers landed at Plymouth, crossed 
the Mississippi and explored to California. Today, our 
pioneers may not be the brawny and husky men of the 
seventeenth century, but their knowledge has reached new 
heights, only to be surpassed by the next generation. Our 
pioneers are not explorers, but scientists, physicists, chem- 
ists, mathematicians, engineers, technicians, jet pilots, in- 
ventors and men eagerly striving for a goal or for progress 
by discovering the unknown and accomplishing the in- 

What is a pioneer? He is one who begins some enter- 
prise. He prepares the way. He's an original investigator. 
Man has explored all points of the earth from the depths 
of the earth to the height of Mount Everest and from the 
North Pole to the South Pole. Presently we are preparing 
for an exploration to the moon or to Mars. The outer space 
is the unknown place for our exploring pioneers, but since 
we haven't reached the outer planets, our pioneers of today 
are those in the laboratories and testing grounds seeking 
the answer to a successful trans-planet flight. 

Las Cruces, New Mexico, is the flat treeless land where 
rockets soar up towards infinity. But what is gained by 
shooting a mass of metal into space? Rockets are flying 
laboratories for those who seek the temperature, the elec- 


trical tension, the light conditions, the alterations in the 
sun spectrum and other minute but important particles of 
this modem age. All these are recorded by instruments 
similar to the television camera and the wire recorder. The 
rocket returns to earth with more answers and more un- 
solved questions. The more information learned about the 
outer world, the closer we come to launching a ship similar 
to the "Santa Maria." This rocket ship, like Columbus' 
schooner, will be motivated by adventure and hope. 

Will man make the pioneer voyage to a neighboring 
planet or will his robot? Man's scientific, ingenious and 
incredible brain has surpassed that of former man. Man's 
robot calculates 2,174 additions or subtractions, 79 multi- 
plications and 65 divisions of five figures in just one second. 
A sorting machine has been invented to arrange 27,000 
perforated card-index sheets an hour in alphabetic, geo- 
graphic or other specified order. What limitations are there 
to the capabilities of man's genius? Man has even invented 
a mechanical brain known as the "Electronic Oracle". It 
produces whirlwind calculations, forecasts harvest and mar- 
ket conditions, predicts social movements, answers presi- 
dents' questions and computes the strength of fighting na- 
tions. It's like a crystal ball! 

What a comparison our present day pioneers are to 
those of two hundred years ago! But it is only natural 
that our pioneers have changed to men with ingenious minds, 
because this modern age is changing. Once there existed 
the age of the "survival of the fittest," which required su- 
preme physical strength, but today man is becoming physi- 
cally lazy. Modern inventions such as the automobile have 
made men dependent on them. These inventions required 
great initiative but the gumption of old has been lost. Man's 
body has become dependent on drugs and pills and the 
height of his laziness has reached a point when automati- 
cally opening doors have been installed. One may argue 
that this modern age isn't inferior physically by showing 
some of the sports records which have been broken. But 


records are set only to be broken again. Modem man isn't 
accustomed, on the average, to suffer the strains that our 
early American pioneers overcame. Our path of life now is 
one of mental, instead of physical strains. 

We are on a new road. This modern age has come, 
whether it is to our hking or not. Maybe we should look 
toward the other planets as Columbus peered across the 
far-stretching Atlantic. But whatever the case may be, the 
pioneers of today are leading us by the hand into the future. 
They are in fact pushing us into their life by making it 
difficult to avoid the inventions and ways of this new era. 
Is it by fate that we are caught in the web of our present 
day pioneers? Do we want their way of life? Why should 
we hold back scientific progress? Will we benefit in the 
end if we hold back scientific progress? Will we benefit by 
the pioneers of today? They are here — fast at work. Time 
will tell, only time! — Russei Robb, via. 


White plumes in the sky, the azure sky 

The azure water, fringed in green. 
White sails on the water, the sparkling water. 

Disturbed by the breeze; boats powered by wind. 

Two score and five white billowing sails. 
All racing together, against one another, 

A ballad in canvas, a ballet of science, 

Their beauty combined with the thrill of the race. 

Triangles of white, billowing, bright. 

One in the lead and followed hard on 
By a pack of contenders, all want to be victor. 

The prize is the honour of winning the race. 

Around the first buoy, all strung out like pearls, 
Their bows cutting sharply the sparkling water. 

Behind a green island they vanish as though they 

Were swallowed up by a monster, but now they appear. 


They string out toward the third and last leg, 
Their triangular sails snow white in the sun. 

As silent as ghosts this magnificent host 

Slips forward, streaks onward toward the last buoy. 

And now they are dotted all over the water 

As they zig-zag towards the finishing line. 
Bows cutting the waves, the crews hard at work. 
Sails flattened to speed them high into the wind. 

The first two are fighting, each tries to point higher, 
And both come about as from one command. 

Sails slip for a moment, crews scramble for jib lines. 
Sails flatten at once, a new course has been set. 

White sails on the water, the azure water, 

The azure water, fringed with green. 
White plumes in the sky, the azure sky, 

A sailor's heart, and a sailor's dream.

The pink glow of a warm summer sunset spread its 
light across the western lake. The reflection cast by the 
small round ball of fire, almost hidden behind the now 
darkened mountains, was the last light of the passing day. 

The quiet of the evening was broken only by the 'put- 
put-put' of a late fisherman in his motor-boat, as he set 
out to catch a bass, to bring back for the morrow's break- 

Now the lake was quiet again. The motor stopped, 
the darkened boat glided silently, swiftly through the glassy 
water as the fisherman, with practised care, quietly, deftly 
dropped the rusty anchor into the deep dark depths below. 
The boat was brought up with a jerk as the anchor took 
hold, and the fisherman readied his tackle in preparation 
for casting his line. The lap of the waves from the out- 


board motor made a regular beat on the pebble-covered 

Out on the lake, not far from shore, in the shadow 
of a rock, the man stood relaxed, the day's work done. He 
flicked his wrist and his nylon line curved behind him, shot 
out over the still lake and dropped silently to the water. 
The red, yellow, and black fly was drawn over the surface, 
leaving only a tell-tale ripple, tantalising for any hungry 
bass that might be lurking about. Again and again, the 
line reached out over the darkening lake. The now almost 
indistinguishable figure waited patiently for his prey. 

Then suddenly the silence was broken by the splash 
of a gleaming bass as he jumped clear out of the water to 
snatch the fly. The fisherman's rod bent almost double. 
The fish had fallen for the trap! Now began the struggle; 
man against fish. The bass was fighting for his life. Out 
went the line like a shot, with a 'whirr,' and then the old 
fellow jumped clear out of the water, and fell back in again 
with a splash, and headed straight back for the boat, as 
the wise fisherman reeled in his line. On and on went the 
battle. Slowly, ever so slowly, the smallmouth black bass 
was brought near the boat, flinging himself in the air, 
showing off his beauty and speed. 

The fisherman readied his net with one hand, while 
with the other he played the fish close to the boat. Now 
was the crucial moment! His arm poised, the man gently 
slipped the dark net under the water. Then with a splash 
and a jerk, the man scooped the fish up in his net, and 
stood up with an exultant smile to admire his prize, letting 
out a sigh of joy and relief. 

Across the now darkened lake could be heard the sounds 
of an anchor being hauled into a boat. Then the quiet was 
again broken by the 'put-put-put' of an outboard motor as 
the fisherman made his way back to shore.

"It's a pirate ship," yelled the sailor from the mast. 

"Follow me," said the captain to the cabin boy, as he 
went into his cabin. The captain bolted the door and said, 
"We have to hide the pearls," but as he looked out the 
window he saw that some of the pirates had already boarded 
his ship and were fighting with his men. He took a table 
and placed it behind the door. As he did this a trunk that 
was hanging from the ceiling fell on top of the boy. 

"I have an idea," said the captain. "Get inside that 
trunk, but quickly, and take these pearls with you." 

"But, Sir, I can't leave you alone," said the boy. 

"Get in, I say! It is an order," said the captain anxiously 
as the pirates were trying to open the door. As the boy 
closed the trunk, he heard the door being opened and a shot. 

In a few minutes he could hear only the wind blowing 
through the open door.

Perhaps the most unusual and interesting feature of 
Toronto is its numerous wooded ravines. These cut up the 
city in various places and contain small streams which flow 
in either an easterly direction to the Don River, or west- 
ward to the Humber, but drain eventually into Lake On- 
tario. Of the two systems, the Don is the more interesting 
because it has two branches and a larger number of tribu- 
taries within the Toronto area than its western counterpart. 
The valleys containing these streams are a barrier to con- 
struction and, to some extent, to transportation, but they 
are advantageous as they form a large percentage of the 
city's limited parklands. They serve also as welcome in- 
terruptions to the somewhat monotonous panorama of com- 
mercial buildings and houses comprising Toronto's urban 
scene. For example, the main Don Valley, bordered in many 


places by flourishing residential sections, is a flat, open field 
area devoid of paved roads and, with the exception of a 
brick works, lacking buildings until well below Bloor Street. 
A few factories, warehouses and a jail stand there, but only 
because the valley at that point is almost unrecognizably 
shallow. Thus a small amount of open country exists within 
a short distance of the city's centre, and within three miles 
of the lake which forms Toronto's southern limit. 

One of the tributary valleys is the Lower Rosedale 
ravine, which, like its more northern namesake the Upper 
Rosedale valley, cuts through a reasonably old and well- 
established residential area; yet its woods remain imcleared 
except for a small strip accommodating a seldom used dirt 
road. One of the largest ravines is Cedarvale, actually an 
extension of the Lower Rosedale valley, which contains only 
a footpath; its wooded slopes can probably be equalled only 
by lands well outside the city. 

It is fortunate that plans for express highways through 
the Don Valley and other ravines joining it, have not 
materialized, and that no housing developments have been 
constructed there, not only because these would destroy an 
obvious asset to Toronto but because such a disaster as 
Hurricane Hazel in October of 1954, might easily recur in 
the future. On that occasion great walls of water swept 
down both the Humber and Don Rivers. In the latter region 
the flood caused little damage, but it resulted in a high 
death toll in the shallower, populated Humber Valley. 
Luckily, the expansion of the city into new suburban com- 
munities has so far followed the arterial roads and bypassed 
the ravines in favour of higher, more accessible and more 
easily cleared land. If the present trend continues, Toronto 
will not be deprived of her beautiful valleys even by those 
ultra-progressive financiers who fail to value these natural 
wooded parklands as a great scenic advantage.

It creeps into the sharpness of night air 
with a low note 
gradually rising. 
A hollow sound, almost singing, 
drowsy yet alert, 

hundreds of wheels and couplings, 
people and things 
going, always going 
until it's gone. 

Bejewelled splendour 

or drab brown and black wood 

smooth or rattling, 

rushing with an impact and a roar, 

hollow soimding 

on the bridge. 

Names gleam in the dark.

Coming, always coming

Perhaps some day you will journey to Scotland, and 
having visited there, you will return home filled with many 
glowing memories of that land. Perhaps you will be deeply 
moved and impressed, as I was, with the Scottish-American 
War Memorial which stands in the capital city square. For 
there is no other piece of sculpture that I know of that can 
quite compare with this masterpiece of Edinburgh. 

This work of art was not originated in the land of the 
heather, but instead it first found its theme and shape in 


the old "Mill of Kintail" which clings to the bank of the 
sparkling Indian River in Northern Ontario. For here, in 
this ancient stone mill, was the home and workshop of one 
of our best known sculptors — Tate MacKenzie. Here, many 
well known pieces of sculpture had their birth under the 
expert hands of this master. He was precise in every detail 
of any object he sculptured, and this is well shown in his 
creation of this memorial. 

The main theme of this bronze casting is a large central 
figure of a Scottish boy resting on a rock. Against his kilt 
there leans a rifle, which is clasped firmly and eagerly by 
the boy. His chin is resting upon his hand, but his eyes 
are staring heavenward in silent expectation. He is the very 
symbol of youth, as he sits tensely, every muscle taut, wait- 
ing for the order to march to battle and to death. 

Behind this lad in a crescent is ringed a column of 
marching men who symbolize the very backbone of Scotland. 
First comes the Scottish band, with drums vibrating and 
pipes skirling, mingled with the shouts of young children 
who follow at their heels. Next come the volunteers, from 
every walk of life, marching three abreast. Men with picks 
and shovels and fishing nets who are marching into oblivion 
without knowing what they are fighting for, but only know- 
ing that they fight for Scotland. Here is a young martyr 
for the cause, as he marches with head held high in pride 
and with a spring in his step. Next comes a youth who is 
sacrificing all his family ties for the cause, his head bent 
so no one can see the glisten of his tears. He rests his hand 
lightly on a tawny collie which darts between his legs, bark- 
ing and whining. And lastly the parents and wives of these 
brave men stand, and look down the road where the dust 
begins to settle in the tracks of their loved ones whom 
they will see no more. 

Is this not a fitting tribute to pay to the men who 
fought so we could live? I would have been proud of it.

The tempest raged in a violent tantrum, lashing onward 
the chaotic shambles of lightning-rift clouds, plunging on 
into the black, lifeless heavens. The torrents of rain, flung 
about in abandon by the ugly intensity of the shrieking 
wind, pelted down upon a plodding figure, clad in oilskins, 
trudging along a dirt road which terminated in an ancient 
homestead, squatting amid the scrub bush on the knoll of 
an adjacent hill. In a short time, the figure had covered the 
remaining distance in its shambling gait, and gained the 
porch-like affair which was spread before the cabin en- 
trance. Pausing momentarily, it swung around and peered 
into the gloom. Apparently satisfied, the figure turned, 
forced the door, and let itself in. With the slamming of the 
door, the sights and sounds of nature's uproar were ren- 
dered practically inaudible to the ear. Drawing the dank, 
musty air into its lungs with obvious relief, the figure slowly 
crossed the dark room until the shape of a desk greeted the 
searching fingertips. Emitting a grunt of approval, it drew 
a match from a pocket, scraped off the protective coatitng 
of paraffin with a finger nail, and struck the thing on the 
floor. Finding by the resulting light the kerosene lamp, 
suspended by a bit of heavy twine over the desk, the figure 
lit the mantle, spreading a repressed glow through the one 

Tossing the oilskins across the room onto the low bunk, 
the figure slowly slumped into the desk chair, pulled several 
pieces of yellow paper from their battered holder, grasped 
firmly the feather pen, dipped it into the well of stagnant 
ink, and on the positioned paper, began to write in slow, 
methodical strokes. 

April 14, 2039. 

"Who I am is not important, what I am is less so, 
what I was is even less than that, but what I will be is 
of great concern to whoever may read this, whenever that 
might be. My tale is not one of a person, but of a world, 


and of a series of events which have brought this world 
to its present alarming state. 

You see, in our world, fear has always been a dominant 
emotion, for partly from fear springs misunderstanding; 
from fear, misunderstanding, and human nature springs 
war; from war spring tremendous physical and mental chal- 
lenges ; and from these has been born a way of hf e in which 
the human being has proved himself superior to the rest of 
the animal kingdom. However, soon after the midpoint of 
the last century, when we had developed war, not only to 
the high degree of complete annihilation of others, but to 
the successful self -extermination of ourselves, we were able 
to find the heart to recant, to renounce the terrible conse- 
quences war held, and in the form of the United Nations 
we agreed to cast the element war from our civilization. 

Then a blissful era of peace enveloped the globe, the 
earth slept in secure tranquillity, the wild turmoil of war, 
of human suffering, was apparently forgotten. 

But it was not. Not for a minute was it forgotten. With 
nature's challenges unconquered and the excitement in all 
possible diversions exhausted, a strange new tension, arising 
from boredom, began to spread. Silent, strained groups 
of people gathered in the streets, in the taverns, in the 
towns, and in the country, everywhere. Fist fights began 
to break out on every comer of every street in every city 
of every county of the world. But when the emotional ex- 
plosion finally came, it came quickly and unexpectedly. 
Hundreds of these groups in a large European city, unused 
to any peace, unable to bear prolonged peace, began to riot 
and fight among themselves. The strongest survived, and 
they began to spread out like waves in a mill pond, waves 
of turbulence on the sea of stagnant humanity. Everybody 
in their path was caught up or killed, all property was 
destroyed, leaving complete devastation behind them. The 
mob was bom. 

It spread like the flood waters along the Styx. It over- 
ran the cities, spilled out into the country, grasping, smash- 


ing, battering, eradicating, absorbing all of the overpopu- 
lated countryside into its growing mass. Once in contact 
with the mob, the mind was helpless, the body was immune 
to any control or direction other than the impulse to plunge 
ahead. Hundreds of thousands of the mob died, were 
crushed, squashed underfoot, and their screams, screams 
of haggard, exhausted, falling humans, added a harmonious 
descant to the tramp of milhons of crashing feet. Living 
off the land, the maniacal mob marched through every 
country of Europe, the oceans at the poles, causing mil- 
lions of deaths; but thousands survived to continue and 
to form the nucleus of the mob on the American continent. 
No matter how many died, more were caught up in the on- 
rushing tide of insane humanity. 

Then the ring began to close, it intensified, the mob 
began to exterminate itself. The survivors closed in, the 
bloody conflict continued and they have fought until now; 
only a tiny segment of them remains and very soon they 
too will be dead. The circle is still closing, very quickly 
now, completely obliterating the surrounding countryside, 
until at the end on this very site, the survivors may well 
converge, and then my story will have ended." 

The figure laid down the pen, wearily swayed to its feet, 
and crossed to the door. It opened the door and stepped out 
onto the porch, oblivious to the storming elements. Across 
the farmland, the rolling farmland, the well-loved land, 
could be descried the fires, the torches of the mob as it 
closed into a never-diminishing arc. Only a few minutes 
now. The figure stepped back into the room, closed the 
door, and returned to the desk. 

"My time is short now, and I must prepare myself for 
the end. The mob is bearing down, quickly. There is no 
escape. Soon the mob will meet near this very building, 
each part of the inhuman mob which has traversed the 
entire earth. And here they will fight it out, slaughter each 
other in a final massacre. In the end, there will be a few 
survivors, a very few. But they will die too, killed by the 


sudden shock of silence after the many days of insane ex- 
citement, just as we all have been killed, directly or in- 

"So here is where my story ends, with the end of the 
human ooccupation of the earth, the extinction of the 
human race of which I am the last remnant. 

"The epitaph of life has been fulfilled again, soon an- 
other evolution will spring into existence, and the story will 
begin anew. 'For as ye came from dust, so shall ye return 
even unto dust'." 

The pen was slowly replaced, the desk chair pushed 
back, the oilskins put on, the room crossed, and the door 
opened. With a sigh of resignation, the figure left the cabin 
and vanished into the night, into the howling tempest to 
face the mob, the final result of the abolition of warfare.

The lateness of this year's April showers which have 
caused a brief lull in the commencement of spring sports, 
gives us of the Sports Staff a chance to look back over the 
happenings of last term. 

This year's Hockey Team appeared to us to be one of 
the most promising teams produced at the School in many 
years. On this team, ably guided by Mr. Humble, were to 
be seen many new faces among the old. The team's out- 
standing qualities lay in their well executed passing plays 
and prolific scoring ability. Unfortunately, after a prom- 
ising start the team's fine edge was dulled by a long period 
of inactivity and this undoubtedly accounted for the few 
defeats they suffered at the hands of their opponents. 
Although we are losing many experienced and valuable 
players, we feel confident that next year's team will be 
strengthened by the experience gained by this year's new- 
comers as well as by the talent they possess. 

This year's Basketball team also deserves special recog- 
nition as it was, in our opinion, a great improvement over 
the teams of the past few years. For the first time in several 
years and since the building of the rink, the squad played 
senior teams. Although no spectacular heights were reached, 
nevertheless the road has been paved for better teams at 


T.C.S. We again feel that the team's success was chiefly 
due to the enthusiasm of all those who played on it. Much 
credit should go to Mr. Dempster who guided the team 
throughout the season. First Team Colours were awarded 
to the starting players in recognition of the vast improve- 
ment which was shown this season. 

Although the First Team Squash did not bring back 
the Little Big Four Championship to T.C.S. , they were in- 
valuable to squash at the School. Directed by Mr. Landry, 
an efficient coaching system was set up by them. Thus more 
newcomers were introduced to the sport then ever before. 
The main object stressed was to give boys a chance to learn 
a sport which they could continue to play and enjoy after 
they left School. The result, shown by the large turnout at 
the squash tournaments, was very encouraging, and we feel 
that squash at T.C.S. is taking on a new importance. 

The two remaining winter sports, swimming and gym, 
kept up their high level of performance. The swimming 
team took a second place in the Little Big Four competition 
and had a most successful season, while the gym team took 
top honours throughout the season and won the Little Big 
Four Championship. 

Enthusiastic spirit and organization contributed to 
making the Rabbit League Hockey far more successful this 
year than it has ever been. Under the helping hand of Mr. 
Brown, four teams were organized and took a very active 
part in the race for top position. There was a far larger 
turnout this year than in previous years and the boys were 
given a chance to learn the fundamentals of the game and 
put them into practice throughout the season. Many excit- 
ing contests were held with second and third teams from 
other schools. Several promising players were definitely 
formed, and in our opinion, many of them will be seen on 
School teams next year and for several years to come. 



T.C.S. vs. U.C.C. 

At Port Hope, February 25. Lost 9-4. 

After having their match at U.C.C. cancelled by snow, 
Trinity played host to the Upper Canada team at Port Hope 
and was defeated 9-4. 

The game opened with many quick rushes and U.C.C. 
took the lead scoring on a screen shot and two more quick 
goals — one being countered during a goal mouth scramble 
and the other a long shot from far out. At the 10 minute 
mark U.C.C. was penalized and Trinity took their ad- 
vantage as Hall scored twice assisted by Long. The period 
ended with U.C.C. leading 3-2. 

In the second period U.C.C. continued to control the 
play and checked very hard. At consecutive intervals Upper 
Canada scored three more times swamping the T.C.S. goalie 
with many shots. The Trinity team was clearly showing the 
effects of a three week lay off. Notable was the large 
number of penalties handed out to both teams. 

In the third period, U.C.C. continued to press hard and 
tallied again early in the period after a T.C.S. change 
of goaler. Arbuthnott of T.C.S. countered unassisted soon 
after. Again, because of the amount of checking, both teams 
were reduced to four players for several minutes. While 
T.C.S. was short-handed, U.C.C. scored once more and then 
Arbuthnott tallied again, unassisted, to end the scoring for 

T.C.S. vs. RIDLEY 

At Woodbridge, February 29. Lost 6-4. 

The School travelled to Woodbridge to play Ridley, who 
were hosts for the game this year. From the outset of the 
game both teams pressed hard and play was fairly even. 

The game got under way with fast action and both 
goalies came up with some fine stops. Midway through the 
first stanza, Wood took the puck into the Ridley end and 
drove the disc into the corner of the net putting the School 
up 1-0. The period ended without further scoring. 


Ridley came out determined to even the count at the 
start of the second period. From a scramble in front of the 
School net, Bakogeorge counted for Ridley. The School 
fought back hard and Cape countered half-way through the 
period. Again Terryberry, for Ridley, and Dalgleish for 
T.C.S. were called on to make some outstanding saves. 

At the beginning of the third period, Ridley tied up 
the score on a goal by Jennings. The battle went on with 
play going from one end to the other. The School, on a 
passing play, netted their third goal. This time it was Hall 
from Long and Winnett. Ridley tied it up on Bakogeorge's 
third goal and went on ahead on a counter by Atcheson. 
Hall put T.C.S. back in the game only to have Jennings and 
Harvey counter for Ridley to close out the scoring for the 
game. The final score was Ridley 6, T.C.S. 4. 

T.C.S, vs. ST. ANDREW'S 
At Port Hope, Maxch 3. Won 6-4. 

After two successive losses, Bigside hit their stride 
again and turned in their second victory of the season over 
St. Andrew's College, the score being 6-4. In the first two 
periods the School played a lack-lustre style of game but 
in the third period they returned to their old style and 
were again unbeatable. 

From the first whistle the feature was end to end 
rushes and a reportedly weak St. Andrew's defence stopped 
anything the School could muster. Mike Burns in the T.C.S. 
goal was nothing less than great. At the mid point of the 
first period, Murray scored for S.A.C. directly from the face 
off. Burns having no chance. St. Andrew's had a definite 
edge in the first period and held a 1-0 lead going into the 
second period. 

Winnett evened the score in the first minute of the 
second period when he scored from close-in. Minutes later 
with the School playing short-handed, Murray scored again 
for S.A.C. The period continued with St. Andrew's still 


having the edge until Outerbridge scored for the School 
after a great stick-handling exhibition in which he drew 
the St. Andrew's goalie right out of the net. 

The third period started with the score tied 2-2, but 
it was not long before S.A.C. led 4-2 on goals by Wyse 
and Murray ii. With only eleven minutes remaining in the 
game T.C.S. suddenly took complete command. Hall scored 
first on a sizzling shot after taking the puck from the St. 
Andrew's defence. Three minutes later Wood dumped in a 
goal after completely fooling the S.A.C. goalie. Assists went 
to Ross and Outerbridge. Wood's goal was closely followed 
by Winnett scoring his second of the day after having been 
set up by Captain Long and Campbell. Ross ended the 
scoring for the School on a goal assisted by Budge and 

In this last period Bigside displayed all the charac- 
teristics of an exceptionally good team and they all should 
be congratulated for a fine showing. 


T.C.S. vs. U.T.S. 

At Varsity, March 7. Won 6-0. 

On March 7, Bigside played U.T.S. at Varsity Arena, 
and won by the lopsided score of 6-0. 

In the first period the Bigside squad hemmed the U.T.S. 
team in their own end, and shortly after the ten minute 
mark, Ross banged in a pass from Budge for the first counter 
of the game. Again the Maroon and Black swarmed all 
over the U.T.S. net, and finally Budge pumped home a pass 
play from Ross and Wood, and Trinity led 2-0 at the end 
of the first period. 

The second period showed a good brand of hockey, with 
neither team showing much superiority over the other. 
However, in the dying minutes of the period, while T.C.S. 
was a man short, Budge scored for Trinity from Campbell 
and Outerbridge on a brilliant play. 


Seemingly unsatisfied with their three goal lead, the 
Maroon and Black struck for another goal, in the opening 
minutes of the third period, Wood scoring from Outerbridge. 

U.T.S. then swarmed back on Burns in the Trinity net, 
but the T.C.S. netminder pulled off marvellous saves trying 
to protect his shutout. Then late in the game Long scored 
two quick goals, both set up by Winnett. 


At Port Hope, March 10. Tied 5-5. 

On Saturday, March 10, Trinity played Danforth Tech 
from Toronto, for the first time. In the first period Outer- 
bridge, Wood, and Ross set up the first goal with a pass 
power play and a hard slap-shot by Budge. That was the 
only goal in the first period, for seconds later the horn 
sounded to end the first stanza. 

The beginning of the second period saw a new goal- 
keeper in the Danforth net, but at 2.08 Winnett took a pass 
from Long and placed it for goal number two. Only six 
minutes later Ross blasted home the 3-0 goal with another 
assist by Outerbridge, and Danforth changed their goalie 
back to the original one. At the end of the second period 
the score was 4-0 with another goal by Cape from Seagram. 
But Danforth soon showed us that they had not lost any 
of their flame in the second twenty minutes, by a barrage 
of shots at the T.C.S. net, during which Dalgleish, the 
T.C.S. goalie, was outstanding. 

In period number three the tide turned, as Danforth 
opened with two quick goals. Following another Trinity 
score by Ross, they scored again to make the score 5-3. 
Two minutes later in a scramble around the T.C.S. net Dan- 
forth again scored. This made the score 5-4 for Trinity. 
With four minutes left, and mounting tension, Danforth 
increased the pressure and finally slapped in a rebound to 
even the score at five all. 



T.C.S. vs. U.C.C. 

At Woodbridge, March 14. Lost 5-1. 

The first team ended their season with a defeat at the 
hands of an increasingly strong U.C.C. team. The first 
period started with fast rushing by both sides imtil, at 7.20, 
Ross scored on a power play for U.C.C. Then U.C.C. executed 
a brilliant passing play with Eaton flicking the puck into 
the goal past Dalgleish. Thus the score read 2-0 until exactly 
a period later when Soward scored the only goal of the 
second period. In the third period, although T.C.S. checked 
hard, Eby, for U.C.C, managed to net another at the eight 
minute mark. Just after this. Trinity weathered two 
simultaneous penalties without mishap, and when they were 
back at full strength, Wood scored from Ross. U.C.C. wasn't 
to be stopped, however, and at the seventeen minute mark 
Eby netted another to make the final score read 5-1 in 
their favour. 

Good goaltending on both sides highlighted a close 
checking game. 



Bethune entered the Bigside House game as an under- 
dog and emerged on top of a 2-1 score to defeat Brent 
House. Brent House iced a team consisting of four first 
team defencemen and two full first team Unes, with Young 
from Middleside in their nets. The Bethune House team 
consisted of the rest of first team and several rabbit 
Leaguers and Middlesiders. 

In the first period Brent showed their power by keeping 
the pressure on the Bethune goalie Dalgleish, but at the 
seven-minute mark, Labatt, who was brought up from the 
Rabbit League, scored during a goal-mouth scramble. The 
Brentities immediately retaliated with Long beating Dal- 
gleish on a hard shot. The play seesawed back and forth 
for the remaining part of the period but there was no fur- 
ther scoring. 


The second period was perhaps the best period of the 
game. Brent pushed their advantage to the hilt and Dal- 
gleish had to stop two break-aways, one by Seagram, and 
the other by Long. The puck again remained in the Bethune 
end. The pressure was eased when Brent was penahzed 
and although Bethune tried to use their advantage, Young 
in the Brent nets made several good saves. The period 
ended with some very hard checking and desperate defence 
work by Bethune. 

In the last period Brent went all out to score but were 
unable to do so. Finally, Bethune got the puck into the 
Brent zone and Ross shoved in what proved to be the win- 
ning goal. After this Brent efforts increased, but they were 
unable to get an equalizer. At the closing whistle Bethune 
was ahead 2-1. The game was very well played with much 
hard checking and fast hockey. 


T.CS. vs. U.C.C. 

At T.C.S., February 29. Won: 6-4 

In their return match with U.C.C, Middleside scored 
a convincing 6-4 victory in a gruelUng, hard fought contest. 

In the early minutes of the first period, U.C.C. went 
ahead on a goal scored from close in during a scramble in 
front of the net. But T.CS. bounced back and went ahead 
on goals by F. Stephenson from Marett and Perkins from 
E. Stephenson and Boughner. 

In the second period, U.C.C. came back and scored, thus 
tying the score 2-2. But minutes later T.CS. went ahead 
on a goal by Smith from F. Stephenson and Marett, only 
to have U.C.C. tie it up again. In the closing minutes of 
the period Farnsworth scored from Hyland to put the School 
ahead 4-3. 

In the third period Binnie scored for T.CS. on a shot 
from the blue line only to have U.C.C come back and score, 
thus coming within one goal of tjring the game. However, 


a minute later F. Stephenson added the clincher with Marett 
getting the assist to make the score at the end of the game, 
T.C.S. 6, U.C.C. 4. 

F. Sephenson was the standout for T.C.S. with his two 
goals and one assist while McMurtry played well on defense 
for U.C.C. 

T.C.S. vs. U.T.S. 

At Varsity Arena, March 7. Won: 5-0 

In their return match with a U.T.S. squad which had 
taken the first game in Port Hope, a slightly stronger T.C.S. 
team swept to a 5-0 victory in Varsity Arena on March 7. 

Both teams were held to a tie throughout two opening 
periods and although U.T.S. had an exceptionally good chance 
when two of the Maroon and Blacks were in the cooler, they 
failed to capitalize. 

In the third stanza Perkins opened the scoring on a 
close shot which the U.T.S. goalie never saw. Then the 
power was turned on and within seconds Smith scored for 
T.C.S., imassisted on a rink-long solo rush. Again, im- 
mediately after the face-off, Smith put another away, this 
time being assisted by Marett and E. Sephenson. Next in 
line was Boughner, who speedily added two more in favour 
of the School, and when the final whistle sounded, T.C.S. 
led by a score of 5-0. 

T.C.S. vs. U.C.C. 
At Port Hope, March 24. Lost: 4-2 

In their third match with U.C.C, Middleside were 
beaten 4-2. 

The first period opened with U.C.C. scoring a quick 
goal on a shot from close in. Minutes later, Perkins of T.C.S. 
went in all alone on a break-away to tie the score, only 
to have U.C.C. come back and go ahead 2-1. Near the end 
of the first period Middleside tied up the score again when 


Perkins scored again on a shot from close in. In the second 
period U.C.C. went ahead 3-2 and in the final period added 
an insurance goal. 

At Port Hope, March 27. Lost: 3-2 

In the final game of this season Middleside tangled 
with the Port Hope Juveniles in a return match. The School 
outshot the Port Hopers by a large margin but were unable 
to take advantage of some golden opportunities and so ended 
up on the short end of a 3-2 count. 

The School opened the scoring in the first period when 
Perkins scored with assists going to Stephenson and Bough- 
ner. The play see-sawed back and forth until Port Hope 
evened the score at the close of the period. 

In the second period Port Hope started very strongly, 
scoring in the second minute of play. This set the School 
back on its heels momentarily. Ian Binnie put the teams 
back on even terms when he scored on a long shot from 
the blue line. The Maroon and Black continued applying the 
pressure throughout the remainder of the period. 

The third period started with the teams all evened up. 
The game remained tied until the 15-minute mark when Port 
Hope scored on a neat passing play. Trinity came roaring 
back in the last five minutes and did everything but score. 
In the last minute the School pulled their goalie and had 
12 good shots on goal but to no avail as time ran out. It 
was a very exciting and fitting finish to a successful season. 



In a hotly contested game, Brent edged Bethune with 
a score of 6-3. Bethune, with only three from the School 
Middleside team, put up a good show, but Brent definitely 
out-played them. The game started quickly and both teams 


played wide open hockey. By the end of the first period 
Little and Boughner had tallied for Brent and Binnie for 

The second period started very fast with Brent putting 
on the pressure. E. Stephenson and Hyland scored for Brent 
and Perkins for Bethune, leaving the score at the end of 
this period at 4-2. 

The third period saw more even play between the two 
teams. Caryer scored for Brent and soon after Drummond 
cancelled that goal with another for Bethune. F. Stephen- 
son closed the scoring with a fine goal leaving the final score 
6-3 for Brent. 


T.C.S. vs. U.C.C. 
At U.C.C, February 29. Lost 8-0. 

In their return match with U.C.C. at Toronto, Little- 
side lost 8-0 against a much larger team. Upper Canada 
soon took advantage of their weight and at the end of the 
first period had a 3-0 lead. The second period was more 
even and both teams had several close calls ; however, U.C.C. 
capitalized on two goals to boost their lead to 5-0, while 
T.C.S. remained dormant. In the third period, T.C.S. began 
to get organized but couldn't net the puck although they 
had many good chances. U.C.C, again put the puck behind 
goalie Crowe, to win 8-0. 

T.C.S. vs. S.A.C. 

At Port Hope, March 4. Tied 4-4. 

On Saturday, March 4, S.A.C. visited T.C.S. and played 
Littleside in one of the most exciting games of the season. 

In the first period S.A.C. took advantage of every 
Littleside error to swarm over the Littleside net. They struck 
for three goals, the first of which came on a shot from the 
blue line by Henson. The second came on a shot from the 


side by Dack, and the third came when Henson broke into 
the clear and beat Crowe in the T.C.S. nets. 

The second period was scarcely under way when Poot- 
mans, on a pass from Cundill, slammed the puck past the 
S.A.C. goalie to put Littleside back in the game. They con- 
tinued the pressure and a few minutes later Cunningham 
scored unassisted, to make the score 3-2. The play then 
cooled off with neither team being able to score, until just 
before the end of the period, when Butler tallied from Cun- 
dill to even the score at three goals apiece. 

The third and final period saw both teams battle for 
possession of the puck. However, Osborne scored for S.A.C. 
in the middle of the period to give St. Andrew's what looked 
to be the winning goal. But Davis came back in the late 
stages of the game to score for T.C.S., and although both 
teams fought desperately right down to the final whistle, 
the score remained a tie. 

At Port Hope, March 10. Won 11-0. 

The T.C.S. third team ended this season in a grand 
style, defeating a smaller Bantam team, 11-0. Trinity opened 
very fast in the first period and took advantage of their 
opponents' disorganization, making good four goals. The 
second period proved less exciting, although T.C.S. dominated 
the play and only two long shots found their way into the 
goal. Then in the third period, Trinity unleashed a blinding 
series of goals that left the Bantams helpless. St. James' 
threw all they had into breaking Crowe's shutout and very 
nearly did so in the dying minutes of the game when Crowe 
had to make some spectacular saves. 

Davis and Pootmans were top scorers for Trinity but 
the whole team was well co-ordinated and contributed to 
the victory. 





March 20, and 23. 

The division of the Littleside squad this year gave the 
defence to Bethune and the forwards to Brent. However, 
Bethune succeeded in finding some very good forwards 
and made the team out of the little it had. The first game was 
extremely even, and whenever one team scored, the other 
quickly retaliated. In the first period, Molson, of Bethune, 
scored on a long shot. This was cancelled by a beautiful 
goal by Hodgetts of Brent, soon after. In the third frame, 
Hodgetts again fooled Crowe and put Brent out in front. 
However, Falkner again tied it up on a sensational rush 
from the far end and the score remained 2-2 at the end of 
the game. 

In the second game Bethune took advantage of the dis- 
organized Brent team and Falkner scored to put them out 
in front. The play was again very even and it was only in 
the second period, when Bethune scored on a break-away 
by Carsley, that scoring resumed. Then the game settled 
into a battle with Crowe, in the Bethune goal, having some 
very close calls. Connell scored again for Bethune, thus 
bringing their total to 3-0. 


At Port H<^e, February 25. 

There was a mighty splash and a great thrashing of 
feet as a determined Trinity swimming team out-swam and 
out-scored a visiting team from Oakwood in an exceptionally 
one-sided meet. 

Trinity seemed to have a monopoly on first and second 
positions in most races, winning nine out of the thirteen 


During the meet Bonnycastle, Newland, and Southern 
of T.C.S. put on an excellent diving exhibition. Their good 
form held the spectators spellbound. 

Harvey Armstrong was by far the best swimmer from 
Oakwood as he scored two of their four victories. For 
Trinity, Ferrie and Jenkins were standouts, and the senior's 
free style relay team must be congratulated for their ex- 
cellent time.

At Toronto, February 29. Won 121-77. 

On Wednesday, February 29, the Trinity swimming team 
swam their way to a well earned victory by a 121-77 total 
against Danforth Technical School. 

The Junior team proved to be the most successful of 
all three teams, winning by a large margin of 55-14. The 
Seniors also won 41-28, while the Bantams lost 35-25. Not 
counted in the total was an excellent exhibition of diving 
by Bonnycastle. From the first "Go," T.C.S. commanded the 


scoring lead and well deserved the final total. Lash and

March 10 
On March 10, the first swimming team gained a second 
place in the Little Big Four meet to end a successful season. 
Ridley emerged winner of the meet with a total of 55 points ; 
T.C.S. came second with 41^2 points just edging out a strong 
Upper Canada squad whose total was 37% points. S.A.C. 
finished well back with 18 points. Upper Canada started 
fast winning the 150 yard medley relay in the new record 
time of 1:24.1. Ridley finshed second, nosing out the School 
threesome of Jenkins, Lash, and Bannerman. The Maroon 
and Black picked up three more points when Davis and New- 
land finished fourth and fifth, respectively, in the 200 yard 
free style. Robertson, of S.A.C, won the event in the slow 
time of 2:16.7. In the 50 yard free style, Ferrie's time of 
26 seconds was fast enough to give him a second spot be- 
hind Freeman of Ridley. In a new event this year, Mclnnes 
of U.C.C, won the orthodox breast stroke in 30.7 seconds; 
Vernon finished fifth in the final standings. Jenkins put up 
a fine showing for the School, winning his heat in the 50 
yard backstroke. His time of 32.4 was two seconds slower 
than Baldwin of U.C.C. who finished in 30.4 seconds. Mit- 
chell also did well in this race finishing in fourth place. 
Freeman of Ridley, won his second race of the afternoon 
by swimming the 100 yard free style in the new record time 
of 57.9 seconds. Ferrie came fourth in the race followed 
closely by Bannerman, collecting three more points for the 
School. The School made its best showing of the afternoon 
by winding up one-two in the diving. Bonnycastle won the 
event with a total of 171 points, and Newland came second 
with 162 points. With such a good standing in the diving, 
the School started edging out U.C.C. who did not place in 
the diving. In the 50 yard butterfly, the School kept their 
lead on U.C.C. although it was won by Mclnnes of U.C.C. 
Saunders won his heat but ended up in third place behind 
Mclnnes whose time of 28,9 seconds was a record. Lash of 
Trinity finished fourth. In the final race of the afternoon, 


the 200 yard relay — second place hung in the balance. The 
Ridley foursome easily won the event but U.C.C. and the 
School battled all the way. Ferrie was able to nose out the 
U.C.C. fourth man by about one-tenth of a second to clinch 
second place in the meet. The meet provided an exciting 
afternoon and showed great skill on the part of the four 
competing schools. 


March 16 

On Friday, March 16, for the first time in a number of 
years, it was decided that the house swimming meet was 
to be included among the many other house competitions, 
so each house produced a team. 

The whole affair was rather one-sided, Bethune having 
a much greater number of the senior team, but there was 
certainly no lack of enthusiasm on either side. There were 
spectators in abundance watching the meet, and they were 
given a wonderful show. All races were very exciting, a 
number of them having almost photo-finishes, although no 
pool records were broken. 

Due to a number of mischances, the actual events have 
been mislaid, but it is known that Bethune eked out a 45 
point lead over Brent, the total scores being 73-28. 

Dave Dunlap made an excellent emcee although a few 
times he lost the list of events, (purely by chance), and 
towards the end of the meet he unfortunately lost his bal- 
ance while at the end of the board and took an unexpected 
wetting. This started a chain reaction and the meet ended 
in a thorough wetting down of all clothed people. 






At Port Hope, February 25. Lost 61-89. 

The "A" squad played host to Ashbury of Ottawa and 
bowed to them 61-39. The score was a poor indication of 
the play which was close and fast. The Ashbury squad was 
led by Nurse who scored constantly from inside the key. 
Ashbury started fast with sharp passing and accurate shoot- 
ing. The visitors earned a substantial lead of 18-7 at the 
quarter. In the second frame the Maroon and Black seemed 
to find the basket, and with accurate shooting from outside 
the key on long set-shots boosted their total to 21. The 
Ashbury squad were checked closely by the School and their 
lead was cut 30-21 at the end of the half. Gilbert scored ten 
points at the half for the School with accurate set-shots 
from outside the key, while Nurse racked up 20 points for 
the visitors on jump shots from under the basket. 

T.C.S. lagged considerably in the last half and Ashbury 
dominated the play consistently. The sharp passing of the 
visitors shook the School's defense and they were able to 
build up a 50-33 lead at the three-quarter mark. In the last 
period the School was checked repeatedly before they could 
get an accurate shot off and the visitors kept their sub- 
stantial lead. 

T.C.S.— Tisdale (14), Gilbert (10), Robinson (6), Noble (6), Dun- 
bar (3), Falkner, Eaton, Hart, Smith. 



At Port Hope, February 29. Won 61-60. 

The School's senior team won a close and exciting game 
over Pickering seniors, 61-60. It was a game in which the 
final outcome was not decided until the last whistle had 
blown. The game started fast with both teams working for 
an early lead. The checking was close but both teams had 
easy shots and scored from under the basket. The Pickering 
squad put their advantageous height to good use and were 
able to lead the School 14-13 at the quarter. In the second 
frame the Maroon and Black came alive, and out-shot, out- 
checked, and out-passed their opponents, dominating the 
play decisively. Dunbar played outstandingly for the School, 
scoring repeatedly on breakaways and set shots from out- 
side the key. By the half the School led their opponents 
33-28 picking up 20 points in the second quarter. 

At the beginning of the second half. Trinity lacked 
scoring potential and Pickering continued to score effec- 
tively, picking up the drive they began to show as the half 
ended. The visitors equalled the School's score and at the 
three-quarter mark led by a 50-43 score. In the fourth 
quarter the School began to show more scoring power and 
led by Gilbert and Tisdale, slowly cut the opposition's lead 
to five points, with one minute remaining in the game. Tis- 
dale scored one basket from inside the key and Gilbert cut 
the margin to one point on a long shot 60-59. Dunbar got 
what proved to be the winning basket on a long corner shot. 
The School kept control of the ball, but with twenty seconds 
remaining a jump ball was called. Pickering gained control 
and worked the ball toward the basket only to have it go 
everywhere but in. The game ended before the visitors could 
collect any further points, although they came about as 
close as possible without scoring. 

T.C.S.— Dunbar (21), Gilbert (12), Tisdale (12), Robinson (11), 
Hart (3), Spivak (2), Noble Falkner, Smith. 




At Port Hope, February 29. Lost 51-43. 

A much improved "B" squad took the floor against 
what seemed to be a taller and more experienced Pickering 
junior team. In the opening minutes of play, both teams 
seemed unsteady. The big factor for the visitors proved 
to be their height, as they seemed to control the backboards 
quite easily during the first quarter. 

In the second quarter Trinity settled and played the 
better brand of ball. Their passing became more effective, 
and they seemed much more confident than they had been 
previously in the game. However, by half time Benkstijn 
of Pickering had collected twenty points while Falkner of 
T.C.S. pushed through fourteen points. Thus, at the half 
the score was 29-20 in Pickering's favour. 

The play was very even throughout the second half. 
Falkner aided the School in its effort to overtake the visitors 
by netting nineteen points. Once again, Benkstijn was the 
big gun for the Pickering squad as he tallied on five goals 
and one free throw. When time ran out, Pickering was 
victorious by a 51-42 margin. 

T.C.S.— Falkner (19), Kerr (15), de Hoogh (2), Seaborn (2), 
Smithers (2), Thomas (2), Bogert. 

At U.T.S., March 7. Lost 55-19. 

In their return match at U.T.S. in Toronto, the Jimiors 
floundered under the more experienced team. U.T.S. opened 
right away, catching T.C.S. off-guard and scored ten im- 
opposed baskets in the first quarter to put them ahead 20-1. 
In the second quarter, however, T.C.S. rallied and only allow- 
ed as many points as they themselves scored so that at the 
half, although U.T.S. had a 28-8 margin, the game looked 
very even. When U.T.S. came back with a rush and scored 
five quick baskets, it comprised their only overwhelming 
rally of the third quarter. The period ended with the score 


reading 43-13, after some sporadic bursts by both sides. 
The last quarter followed this same pattern, with U.T.S. 
retaining their substantial lead. The final score was 55-19. 


The "A" basketball classic between the two houses was 
won this year by Brent. From the start of the contest the 
Brent squad seemed to dominate the play and at the end 
of the first half they led by a 24-13 margin. At the opening 
of the second half Bethune narrowed the deficit to five 
points. However, Brent's shooting became much more 
accm^ate and they again began to widen the lead. In the 
last five minutes of play. Brent switched to a more defensive 
and possessive brand of ball, as the Bethune team tried to 
©vertake their opponents. The final whistle saw Brent vic- 
torious 55 to 38. 

In the "B" contest Bethune edged Brent in an extremely 
close contest, 41-39. From the opening whistle Bethune took 
a commanding lead. By half time the score was 21-9 in 
their favour. 

However, in the second half a much more determined 
and spirited Brent team fought its way to within six points 
of their Bethune opponents. In the last minute they nearly 
overtook their opponents but failed by the margin of one 
field goal. 


This year saw the largest nimiber of boys ever to com- 
pete in the School Squash Tournaments. Much of the credit 
must go to Mr. Landry who along with his squash team 
promoted interest among the new boys and the second years 

Meighen and Wells were instrumental in setting up the 
three major tournaments and subscribing competitors. 


In the Senior tournament a new rule was invoked. No 
man in the first seven of the School ladder could compete. 
Thus for the first time the number one and two on the 
squash team would not be the usual finalists. 

Sixty-four people entered the Senior Tournament and 
the semi-finalists were Scott, Budge, Seagram, and Wother- 
spoon. In the finals Scott defeated Wotherspoon in a very 
close match. 

For the School title, Derek Drummond, number one on 
the squash team, played Mike Meighen number two. Drum- 
mond won in a well played contest. 

In the Junior meet, Scott again swept the field of 22 
to win by defeating Barbour i in the finals. 

Finally, in the New Boys' tournament, after a number 
of surprising upsets, Dave Crowe finished as winner after 
defeating Dave Bogert.

At Toronto, March 3. Won 4-2. 

On March 3, a reconstituted T.C.S. squash team travelled 
to Toronto to play a six man match against the B. & R. 
The team showed the results of its season's practice by 
sweeping to a 4-2 victory over the Club.

On Wednesday, March 7, the Trinity Squash Team 
played the T.C.S. Old Boys in a night match at the B. & R. 


The team was using seven players with Mr. Landry playing 
in the number one position. After losing to the Old Boys 
at the beginning of the meet, the School turned victor and 
defeated them 5-2.

At Port Hope, March 10. 

In their last match of the season the Trinity Squash 
team composed of Drummond, Meighen, Proctor, Wells, 
Mitchell and Spivak, played host to a group of Canada's 
best squash players — the Jesters. The Jesters, many of whom 
have played for the Lapham Cup, put on a fine display of 
squash. Each of the T.C.S. team played against two of the 
Jesters in two-game matches. Notable was the fine match 
between Drummond, of T.C.S., and Howard, of the Jesters. 
The team enjoyed the match very much and gained a lot 
of experience from playing against a group with such fine 
talent. On the Jesters team were E. Howard, B. Black, 
J. Boddington, S. Heatherington, and M. Gunn. 


At Toronto, March 19. 

For the first time in three years T.C.S. relinquished 
the Little Big Four Squash championship to Ridley. The 
matches did not have the excitement which has been pre- 
valent in former years. Ridley had a competent and very 


experienced squad while the Trinity squad, with only one 
man from last year's Championship squad, was relatively 

After the morning matches, Ridley had a comimanding 
7-2 lead over T.C.S. which they lengthened in the afternoon 
matches and were victorious at the end by a 9-6 score. 


Drummond defeated Ireton (U.C.C.) 3 — 1 

Drummond lost to Gordon (B.R.C.) 3—2 

Meighen defeated Bassett (U.C.C.) 3—0 

Meighen defeated Coombs (B.R.C.) 3—1 

Proctor defeated Essaye (U.C.C.) 3—0 

Proctor lost to Treemon (B.R.C.) 3 — 

Mitchell defeated Parker (U.C.C.) 3—0 

Mitchell lost to Smith (B.R.C.) 3—0 

Wells defeated Ash (U.C.C.) 3—0 

Wells lost to Poole (B.R.C.) 3—0 


Lost 8-3 

The second squash team travelled to Toronto to meet 
Ridley seconds at the B. & R., and was defeated 3-2. Ridley 
proved to be a much more experienced squad but had to 
go hard all the way to win. The closest match of the game 
was between Maclaine and Allen of T.C.S. It went to 13-13 
in the fifth game before Allen finally won 3-2. Although 
our team had previously had no match experience, they 
made a very good showing. 

Mitchell, I. S. M. defeated Robinson, 3-0; English lost 
to Beamish, 3-0; Wotherspoon lost to Brown, 3-0; Barbour, 
D. A. lost to Malcolmson, 3-1 ; Allen defeated Maclaine, 3-2 ; 
Bowen lost to Butterfield, 3-0.

At Masaryk Hall, Toronto, February 25 

This year a team composed of three boys, Irwin, Ham, 
and Rayson, entered the Ontario finals. Represented at this 
event were teams from Windsor, Ont., Noranda, Que., Mon- 
treal, Que., and many from areas around Toronto. Most 
of the team championships were taken by the Windsor Gym 
team, who won the Junior Women's, Junior Men's, and 
Senior Women's titles. In the Junior class Donald Dominito, 
from Windsor, captured first place. On the horizontal bar, 
Rayson, of T.C.S., came eleventh out of nineteen entries. Ray- 
son and Irwin also tied for eighth place on the box horse, 
and Irwin placed seventh on the pommel horse, and tenth 
in Free Hand Calisthenics. This competition was a great 
success for the boys as they learned a great deal from 
competing on such a high level. 


March 3 

The T.C.S. team composed of Irwin, Ham, Rayson, 
Davies, and Derry, competed with West End Y., and Etobi- 
coke Collegiate in a very good meet. Linder, of West End Y., 
was the highest individual scorer with MacKsymec from 
West End Y. coming second, and Renton, of Etobicoke third. 
We express our thanks to the West End Y. for their wonder- 
ful hospitality and the wonderful meal which they provided 
after the meet.

On March 10, T.C.S. fielded the strongest gym team of 
the year and in a repeat performance we brought back the 
team trophy for the second year in a row. The team con- 
sisted of Irwin, Ham, Rayson, Ellis, and Burns. These five 
successfully turned back all opposition from Etobicoke Col- 
legiate, Humberside Collegiate, S.A.C., and Oshawa Col- 
legiate. Daca, from Humberside, won the individual cham- 
pionships, with Renton, of Etobicoke, and Burns, of T.C.S.,

B.R.C., S.A.C., T.C.S., March 17 

Once again T.C.S. had the pleasure of playing host at 
Hart House to two other schools of the Little Big Four for 
a Gym Competition. The meet was of quite high calibre 
with T.C.S. taking the top team honours with 5967 points, 
while S.A.C. and Ridley followed closely with 5342 and 5210 
points respectively. Burns, of T.C.S., was the highest in- 
dividual scorer with 1210 points and Ham, of T.C.S., was 
the runner-up with 1182 points. Burns won first place on 
the Horizontal Bars, Parallel Bars, and Pommel Horse, while 
Ham obtained first place on the Box Horse. Wyse, of S.A.C, 


was the third man, winning the mats and coming second 
on the High Bar. Terryberry, was top man for Ridley, 
taking second place on the mats and coming sixth in total 
points. We hope to see S.A.C. and Ridley in an annual meet 
with T.C.S. in the future. 


March 20 

The School's gym competitions this year were held in 
the afternoons instead of evenings, because of play practices 
being held in the gym. In the Bigside competition, seven 
competitors entered, with five obtaining the recommended 
88 percent of points. With all apparatus and exercises com- 
pulsory. Burns came out with the best score of 2481/^ out 
of 265. Next to him came Irwin with 245. The next three 
boys, Ellis, Ham, and Rayson, followed in close order, with 
2431/2, 2411/f), and 240 points respectively. 


A very big turnout this year entered the Middleside 
competition, with fourteen boys competing for this colours. 
The calibre of the team this year was very high with Davies 
being top man and Hyland ii following closely behind. Out 
of a possible 210 points, the results were as follows: 

1, Davies, 204i/o; 2, Hyland i, 202; 3, Kennish, 193; 
4, Marett, 191 1/2 ; 5, Dunlap, 180.

One definite fact emerges from the early part of this 
term — we are breeding a hardy race of enthusiastic crick- 
eters! We have been out in all sorts of weather — mostly 
very cool and frequently damp and windy — but neverthe- 
less all hands have clamoured to play and, what is more, 
have appeared to enjoy themselves while doing so. A word 
should be said for the umpires and coaches — they too have 
proved themselves to be equally hardy! 

Many events lie ahead of us this term ranging from 
Inspection Day through Sports Day and Cricket matches. 
The days pass with deceptive speed, as they always do 
when one is busy and happy. 

Good luck in the Final Exams and a very good Summer 
Holiday to everybody!

Canada and are then taken on a guided tour. On the tour 
you will be shown many interesting things, one being a

Then you are shown the Assembly Rooms, each donated 
by a certain country and decorated by it. Also, you are 
shown the main room which is the General Assembly Room 
where all seventy-six United Nations meet under a big dome

thousands of electric lights for night meetings. 


Each of these rooms has earphones by the chairs

Many people ask, "How does God fight against aggres- 
sive countries?" 

The answer to this is, God works in humans, helping 
them to do good. Ministers, laymen, and teachers are not 
the only ones able to work towai-ds world peace. Parents 
can teach their children to live by the Ten Commandments 
and take them to church regularly. 

Yes, God is helping us; let us try to work in unison 
with Him.

Where all is still; 

Except for the distant whistle 

Of the late express 

Hustling, bustling. 


Toward its destination many miles away. 

The moon 

Casts ghostly shadows 

Over the rough and rocky land; 

While the stars, 


Make the sky look like a patchwork quilt 

Untouched by human hands. 



Far away to the east 

The red glow 

Of the sun 

And another day.

Most boys like collecting things for a hobby. I like 
collecting birds' eggs because, while I am collecting them, 
I learn about the birds and their habits. Some eggs are 
harder to get than others and, while getting them, we have 
our troubles because some people and all birds aren't as 
keen on my hobby as I am. 

Getting a kingfisher's nest isn't easy because it digs 
a tunnel into the bank on a river. The tunnel is about five 
feet long — at the end is the nest. 'It's your turn to dig now, 
I'm winded." My friend picked up the shovel and began to 
dig deeper into the bank. Half an hour later we reached 
the nest. Happily we took two of the five eggs. When we 
got home, we told our friends of the find. When we added 
this egg, we had forty-three eggs. 

I can think of other adventures, such as stringing a 
rope across a pasture field and dragging it along so that 
when a Bobolink flew up, we walked along the rope and 
looked for the nest. We did find a nest, but in doing so, 
we were interrupted by an unfriendly bull. The same day 
we found a Baltimore Oriole's nest, but alas, httle sister 
sat on the eggs. 

Although every time we do not get an egg, I not only 
learn about birds but other things in nature too.

The ball is bowled fast; 

You raise your bat, 


It bounces. 


And to the leg; 

You step out, and Smack! 

The ball arcs high. 

Over the fielder's head. 

To land 

Beyond the boundary line. 

A six! 

A good, long smash. 

The ball is thrown in to the bowler; 
He begins 
His run-up, 


Once more you raise your bat; 

The ball is coming 

Straight for the center wicket, 

You swing — 

And your bat meets air. 

Your glory fades away 

As the bails 


To end your day 

At bat.

The French Revolution began in 1789. It broke out 
because the political structure of France failed to keep pace 
with the social changes. 

At this time there was a monarchy led by Louis XIV 
and a group of noblemen. These noblemen or aristocrats 
had many luxuries and privileges, while the peasants and 
middle class were heavily overtaxed and were denied equal 

Finally, the peasants decided to do something about 
the situation. Disorder broke out and the Bastille, the great 
prison of Paris, was stormed. Louis yielded to this violence, 
and abolished all luxuries. 

For two years a kind of government called the National 
Assembly was organized, but was a failure. The King 
wanted back his former power and the peasants wanted a 
republic. Their slogan was, "Liberty, Equality and Fra- 
ternity. The peasants won; Louis was deposed, and in 
1793 he and his queen were executed. 

Now came a bad time for all aristocrats. They were 
forced to flee or be guillotined. Some got away but many 
were caught. 

Soon there came trouble. There was a struggle for 
power in the government and the extremists or Jacobins 


won. Robespierre, leader of the fiercest Jacobins, executed 
his rival, Danton. Then came the terrible Reign of Terror 
in which sometimes hundreds were executed daily, not only 
aristocrats but those who didn't follow the Robespierre 
policy. This soon threw the government into anarchy. 
Robespierre was overthrown and executed and the reins 
finally taken over by Napoleon Bonaparte.

While I was reading the other evening the Hghts went 
out and I was left in darkness. I knew that the power 
failure was a temporary matter and that soon I would be 
able to see again. This is not so for people who are blind. 

In Canada today, for thousands of people, sight cannot 
be restored by the flick of a light switch. We who have 
sight take it so much for granted. Colour, shape, quantity, 
distant or far objects are all a blank to those who have 
no sight. To them night and day, Ught and darkness can 
can only be felt, not seen. There are few books they can 
read; few games they can play, yet many blind are as 
cheery and hopeful people as one can meet. In many cases 
they do not deserve our pity but our admiration for their 
courage in the difficulties they must face.

There it was! Coming down the stairs. It came closer. 
He started to run along the hall, through the door, and 
out to the yard. He ran faster, but it still came on, gaining 
with every step. When would it stop ? It was coming closer ! 

"This must be only a nightmare," he panted to him- 
self. "It couldn't be real. There aren't such things — or are 
there? No! It must be only a dream." 


He was getting tired. With every step he felt a tre- 
mendous urge to sit down and rest. When would this dream 
be over? When would he wake up and come back to reality? 

But as the creature finally pounced on him, it dawned 
on him. There was no dream.

Gold mining is very intricate. It involves air compressors 
run by electric engines for drilling, and for many other 
purposes. In case of power failure, which would result in 
having many men stranded below ground without any way 
to get out, there is a large 3,000 h.p. diesel standby unit 
which could produce enough power to supply a town of 
10,000 people. 

Below ground there is a large rock-crusher 120 feet 
high that crushes rock to the two-inch size. There are two 
cages that travel 20 m.p.h. down the shaft; one for ore, the 
other for men. One of them has a two-inch steel cable ; the 
other one and a half. 

No mining at aU is carried on directly in the shafts 
but in stopes 300 feet above or below the shafts. These 
stopes are large rooms where the mining is carried on. In 
these rooms mining can be dangerous for they have low 
ceilings and rock falls can easily occur. To cut down this 
hazard there are large rock bolts, 13 feet long, which are 
run straight into the ceiling and fastened tight. 

To fill the stopes after they are mined out, hydraulic 
backfill is used. That is, after the ore is ground to powder 
and the gold removed, the remainder is fed through pipes 
back into the stopes to fill them up, and when they are full, 
they are sealed off.

This Meet provided very much closer competition than 
usual and saw Rigby House win the Trophy by a margin 
of 53 points to 48 for Orchard. 

Warner swam very strongly to set new records in the 
100 yds. Free Style, the 40 yds. Breast Stroke, and the 40 
yds. Back Stroke. . He wins the Housemaster's Cup for the 
Best Swimmer with 18 points. Henning is the runner-up 
with 9 points. 



Cricket is one game above all others which depends a 
great deal on the weather. So far this term it has been 
difficult to get as much practice as usual due to rain. 

With three Old Colours on the Squad we will have to 
rebuild, but if enthusiasm counts for anything, the present 
squad should be able to give a good account of itself.

The sudden death of Hugh Labatt on March 31 sad- 
dened every T.C.S. person who knew him or knew of him 
and all his host of friends. For nineteen years he had 
been a member of the Governing Body and he took untold 
pains to attend meetings and to give every help to the School 
in any way possible: he was deeply interested in T.C.S. 

Hugh Labatt came to the School in 1898 and remained 
for two years. Not many boys make such an impression as 
he did in a short time. His name is in the prize lists and 
he became an accomplished athlete. He was Captain of the 
Hockey Team, he played on the Cricket Team for two years 
and made top score in several games, and he was a strong 
member of the Football Team. After he left he played in- 
termediate football for London and was a member of the 
team which won the Intermediate Dominion Championship 
in Montreal. 

During the First War he enlisted as a private and saw 
service in northern Russia; when he was appointed Honor- 
ary Colonel he used to say it was a high rank for a former 
private and N.C.O. 

In the city of London and elsewhere the Labatt company 
has given assistance to countless enterprises for the benefit 
of the community; it has often been said by civic leaders 
that one could depend on the Labatts for generous help to 
worthwhile causes. 

Those of us who knew Hugh Labatt well realize we have 
lost a close friend and one whose heart was devoted to T.C.S. 
and all it stands for; he often visited the School and always 
liked to reminisce about old days. 


It is typical of him that he should make most generous 
provision in his will for bursaries to boys whose parents 
could not afford the fees: before the end of this century 
there may be many lads at T.C.S. on Hugh Francis Labatt 
bursaries or scholarships. 

The School extends its deepest sympathy to Mrs. Labatt 
in the loss of a devoted husband and one whose friendliness 
and understanding brightened the paths of so many.

(Editorial from The Toronto Telegram) 

Trinity College School Serves 

With an objective of $2,625,000 by 1965 and an im- 
mediate target of $1,000,000, Trinity College School, in Port 
Hope, has launched a campaign for funds to enable it to 
continue the service it has been rendering since its foun- 
dation in 1865 in training boys for the duties of citizenship. 

In this direction the School has a splendid record. Its 
first Head Boy, 1866-67, went on to win renown as a great 
physician and teacher. Sir William Osier. In the past 20 
years, pupils of the School have won 155 university scholar- 
ships, including seven Rhodes Scholarships. Of these seven, 
six were won over a six-year span, an unprecedented achieve- 
ment.] Old Boys of the School have been quick to respond 
to the country's call. No less than 98 percent, of eligible 
age volunteered for service in World War II. In the life of 
the country, in the varied activities of the community in 
which they reside, former pupils of T.C.S. make their con- 
tribution in responsible posts. 

A school which inculcates a sense of responsibility and 
duty, which develops character and implants the basic vir- 
tues, which maintains a high academic standard, is clearly 
an indispensable asset to the community and the country. 
Such a school is Trinity College School. 

Its past services command admiration, its capacity to 
fulfil its role in the future will be greatly amplified and 
strengthened by the funds it needs for its maintenance. Con- 
tributions to the T.C.S. Fund, of which C. F. W. Burns is 
chairman, may be sent to Suite 825, 159 Bay Street,

Leaving here, as others before us have left, we stand 
looking back and remember, as others before us have re- 
membered. It is a happy feeling, and a proud one. With 
optimism we look ahead, seeking to learn what can be 
learned, and then hope to give in some small measure to 
the humanity of which we are a part. But the future is 
closed to our eyes, so we summon up our memories of time 
spent here and a touch of sadness enters in. Turning and 
glancing once more at the entrance of the School, we can 
see it all now, our life here. 


"Beati Mundo Corde." When we first came here to 
these halls, they were only words; since then we have 
learned to know and understand their deepest meaning. In 
our hearts we know their significance. The Chapel and the 
Cross on the terrace are reminders: 

"At the going down of the sun and in the morning 
We will remember them." 
In this Chapel some of us have been awakened to the real 
meaning of the Christian life and peace of mind has come 
to us here. The Clock reminds us that time gone by is gone 
for ever. We have learned not to waste it, but to use it 
rightly to the general good of all, for it cannot be used 
again: "Irrevocabile". 

To the left stretch the green fields on which we often 
shared in carefree sport with others and among ourselves. 
We practised ardently, and eagerly competed: to win, to 
lose, we learned both. We learned the importance of being 
able to co-operate with others towards a common end, and 
we know that fair play is an essential part in life. 

We have been challenged to "Enter and Grow in Wis- 
dom." Leaving, we have learned, and are the humbler for 
it. The Library, the Hall, the Gym — they, and all that 
happened there are only memories now, but as such they 
have the advantage that they last for ever. The surround- 
ing country will dwell in our minds — the dam, the bridge, 
the creek, the lighthouse; for those of us who are leaving 
they are now symbols of happy times spent here. 

We all bear in our hearts a deep feeling of thankful- 
ness and indebtedness towards this School, and to the 
persons through whose patience and goodwill we have been 
shown the right way in life. Our only wish is that those 
who rise to take our places may value their time spent here 
as much and do better than we did. 
"Great Spirit Eternal, inspire us this day, 

To strive without ceasing. 

In wisdom still increasing. 
To love, and so to live Thee, God's life and God's way." 

— N.s. 



In the late 1920's, when I was a university student, I had 
for two years the perfect summer job. The pay was good 
and there was practically no opportunity of spending it. 
There was time enough off for really first-class fishing. And 
the surroundings were magnificent — square mile after square 
mile of lakes, channels, and islands in the Canadian north 
with comparatively few summer cottages and consequently 
comparatively few people. In fact, within a minute or two 
one could easily go beyond the reach of the human ear, the 
human voice, or the human eye. There were literally no 
roads. One had to reach the district by train or possibly 
by plane — there was very little air traffic in those days — 
and once you were there you had to travel by water. It 
was the custom for the owner of a summer establishment 


to employ a young man to drive his motor-boat, chop the 
wood, run the water-pumping machinery, and generally act 
as factotum about the place, but the most important duty 
of the boatman— as the young man was usually called — was 
to keep the motor-launch running efficiently, and to know 
his way so thoroughly about the islands and channels that 
he would never lose himself— and his employers and their 
guests — either by day or by night. The motor-launch was 
the only link with neighbours, suppUes, medical help and 
the railway; navigation was very important. One of the 
first things a new boatman had to do was somehow to 
memorize skylines so that he could find his way about at 
night. But even more important than that was the ac- 
quiring of some sort of knowledge of submerged rocks and 
reefs. There were plenty of them and hardly any of them 
were buoyed. Many an old-timer who would have claimed 
that he knew the lakes like the back of his hand, sooner 
or later found himself stranded on an uninhabited shore 
with a crippled boat. You can see that rocks and reefs 
constituted a difficult problem and to make the problem 
more interesting, water levels varied from time to time and 
new rocks and reefs were brought into the danger zone. One 
season, I remember, the water was thirteen feet higher than 
normal ; docks were nine or teen feet under the surface ; and 
I often drove a 32-foot launch literally into the woods and 
tied it up to two trees. While I was very new and green, 
and wondering how I could ever find out what I had to find 
out about the rocks, I heard a visitor ask one of the year- 
round inhabitants of the place, as he drove his boat non- 
chalantly along at full speed, "Do you know where all the 
rocks in these lakes are?" He answered, "No, Ma'am; I 
know where they aren't." This helped me solve my im- 
mediate problem. And ever since I have been reflecting the 
wisdom contained in the remark. As a result of reflection 
I venture now to say that there are two ways and two 
ways only of making a successful passage through life. 
You can try to find out where all the rocks are; or you can

try to find out where the rocks aren't. If you adopt the 
latter course, changing water-levels — which occur in life as 
well as on the Winnipeg River — won't bother you at all. 
If you adopt the former, you will sooner or later pile up, 
for there are too many rocks to be known, and changing 
water-levels are always making different rocks dangerous. 

In fact, to me the essential difference between the Old 
Testament and the New as guides to living is that the Old 
Testament tried to chart all the rocks which might cause 
havoc in life, while the New Testament pointed out where 
the rocks aren't. The Ten Commandments, for example, 
marked out ten reefs which were dangerous at the time. 
But water-levels have changed. None of you, I think, is 
now in danger of making graven images of God. The fine 
points of religious law were an attempt to map even tiny 
rocks, and the Pharisees, of whom some of you may have 
heard, did their best to make the charts complete. "Thou 
shalt not" is an attempt to mark a rock. In the New Testa- 
ment Jesus pointed out where the rocks aren't by saying, 
"Thou shalt", and He really only said it twice. "Thou shalt 
love the Lord thy God with all thy heart and with all thy 
soul and with all thy mind," was the way He said it once. 
"Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself" was the way 
He said it the second time. Or to put it in the terms I have 
been using, Jesus said, "If you really love God and all 
human beings, you will always be where the rocks aren't." 
If you have this kind of love, you will never be in danger 
of coveting your neighbour's ox, or of killing, or of stealing, 
or of taking God's name in vain, or of wrecking yourself 
on any of the rocks which generations of sincere people 
have tried to chart. Love is the key. He said, to safe navi- 
gation in life. There are no rocks in the channel of love. 

This simple, but extraordinarily difficult idea has never 
been fully understood or accepted, and even Jesus Himself, 
with all His charm and power — and love — had trouble in 
making the people who knew Him understand what He was 
talking about. You would have thought that He left it open 


to no doubt; that He made it clear enough even for thick 
heads and hard hearts. For example, He told the story of 
the Good Samaritan, Did it ever occur to you that the two 
people whom Jesus had go by on the other side — the priest 
and the Levite — were pillars of the church and of the com- 
munity, good, honest people who thought they knew where 
the rocks were, and, in the story, actually piled up on a 
pretty large reef? Did it ever occur to you that a Samari- 
tan was chosen for the role of love because Jesus' audience 
at the time believed themselves to be a cut above Samari- 
tans, and much more knowledgeable about rocks? Many 
examples could be cited in addition to the good Samaritan. 
I shall limited myself to just one other example of Jesus' 
many attempts to leave His great idea open to no doubt. 
Do you remember His rather awful picture of the Final 
Judgment when the King, as Jesus called him, said, "I was 
an hungered and ye gave me no meat; I was thirsty and ye 
gave me no drink; I was a stranger and ye took me not 
in; naked and ye clothed me not; sick and in prison and 
ye visited me not"? How could there possibly have been 
any doubt? Jesus identified Himself with the down and 
out, with the sick, and even with jail-birds. All these people 
were included in His new commandment, "Love one an- 
other." And finally to explain once and for all the quality 
of the love which was central in His teaching, He demon- 
strated His own love for men by acceptmg a horribly 
shameful an horribly painful execution. We as Christians 
believe that Jesus is the Son of God. If so, then God so 
loved men and women that in spite of His infinite power, 
which presumably could have changed the world and all 
that's in it in a fraction of a second, had He so willed — 
God so loved you and me that He had His Son undergo 
torture — plain, real, ordinary, horrible torture resulting in 
death — ^to demonstrate what love really is. I have always 
taken this to mean that you can't say, "God has power; God 
also has love; He could have used His power; He chose to 
use His love." Rather you must say, "God's power and His 


love are the same thing." Love is power. The most potent 
force available even in the world — more potent even than 
atomic energy — is love. We have begun to tap atomic 
energy, but we have not even made a beginning at tapping 
the power potential of love. 

Some reasons for our failures are quite visible to the 
naked eye. 1. We who use the English language are obliged 
to use one verb "to love" for a variety of purposes. We 
love a good dinner. We love to play football. We love a 
good book. We love our parents. We love Canada. We love 
God. We love our friends. Sooner or later most, if not all 
of you, I hope, will love a woman. You will probably recog- 
nize that in all the examples I have just given there is at 
least a subtle difference in the meanings which the verb 
"love" is expected to convey. The language in which the 
New Testament is written has advantages over English in 
this respect. It has three or four ways of expressing the 
various kinds of love. It can make its meaning reasonably 
clear and avoid our confusion. I am not going to trouble 
you with a comparison of the verbal resources of Greek 
with those of Enghsh. It is enough to say that whereas 
there may be varying degrees of selfishness in what English- 
speaking people call "love," the Greek language makes it 
clear that Christian love — the love of God for man, the love 
of man for God, and the love of man for his neighbour — 
is completely selfless. II. The doctrine of Love seems to 
most people, for some reason or other, to be a milksop 
doctrine. It may be manly and strong, when the occasion 
demands, to drop powerful bombs, but it is weak and un- 
manly to apply love to sources of trouble. Is this really 
the case? Which is it harder to do — to erase your enemy, 
or to follow the bidding of Jesus and love him? When your 
fellow-human asks for your overcoat, is it easier to refuse 
him, or to give him your shirt, too? You know the answer 
as well as I. It takes a much stronger and a much greater 
man to follow the course laid out by love. There is cer- 
tainly nothing feeble about Christian love. Some trouble 


has been caused for Christians by one of the Beatitudes, 
which in the English Bible reads, "Blessed are the meek, 
for they shall inherit the earth," There is nothing meek, 
in our sense of the word, about true Christians. The Beati- 
tudes are, I think, suffering form mistranslation, and this 
Beatitude should read, "Blessed are the gentle, for they 
shall inherit the earth." Gentleness involves great strength 
and great forbearance — there is no weakness whatsoever 
in it. III. We all admire, in certain circumstances, the per- 
son who acts on a basis of selfless Christian love. We ad- 
mire the father or mother who dies in an attempt to save 
children from a fire. We admire the teen-ager who although 
he can't swim, goes into the water to pull out a child. We 
admire the man who gives up his Ufe in trying to save a 
friend. We are moved, in fiction or drama, by the man 
who can sacrifice himself for a friend, saying — as did 
Sidney Carton in The Tale of Two Cities — "It is a far, far 
better thing that I do than I have ever done." We admire 
Albert Schweitzer who gave up half a dozen brilliant and 
distinct careers — as concert organist, as philosopher, as 
theologian, as historian, as scientific researcher — because 
he loved his neighbours, black and remote though they were. 
And in so doing we pay tribute to Christian love as a quality 
of the strong and great person. But what about the pan- 
handler in the street, the down-and-out who knocks at our 
door, the criminal in the courts, or on the front pages? It is 
terribly hard to love these people. Jesus had no doubt 
about it. He specifically mentioned down-and-outs and jail- 
birds. But it is terribly difficult for most of us not to have 
doubts and it is only the great who have been able to stifle 
their doubts. I myself was very close to a great and good 
man — a clergyman — who once undertook as a labour of 
Christian love a daily visit to a young man convicted of a 
murder. He spent the whole night before the execution with 
the young man and stood by him at the hanging and loved 
him so much that for six weeks after the hanging he was 
useless for his ordinary occupations. It has been done and 


it can be done. Love is not a mark of weakness. It is 
possible only to the great and the strong. 

The early Christians must have possessed greatness 
and strength, otherwise Christianity would never have sur- 
vived. For some centuries they were constantly in trouble 
of such great magnitude that it is almost impossible for us 
to imagine oureslves in their shoes. They formed a tiny, 
feeble minority with almost everything and everybody 
against them. Consequently they were dependent on their 
own faith and their own hope; they had nothing else to 
support them. And yet one of the earliest Christians, St. 
Paul, who certainly had been through enough trouble and 
danger to know what he was talking about, while recog- 
nizing the importance of faith and hope, declared with utter 
conviction that love is infinitely more important. Love was 
infinitely more important to him because he knew that if 
love were removed Christianity would lose its uniqueness 
and its power. Listen to him: "Though I speak with the 
tongues of men and of angels and have not love, I am be- 
become as sounding brass or a tinkling cymbal. And 
though I have the gift of prophecy and understand all 
mysteries and all knowledge, and though I have all faith 
so that I could remove mountains, and have not love, I am 
nothing. And though I bestow all my goods to feed the 
poor and though I give up my body to be burned, and have 
not love, it profiteth me nothing. . . . And now abideth faith, 
hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love." 

Here is the chart for the Christian's voyage. If you 
follow the course laid out by Jesus and Paul you will have 
incredibly happy sailing; you will never lose a rudder or a 
propeller; you will never run aground. And you will be 
exhibiting in a totally different and much more important 
area than Minaki, Ontario, the wisdom embodied in the 
remark of my friend Bill, "No, Ma'am, I don't know where 
all the rocks are; I just know where they aren't." 



The Service of Dedication of the new window given in 
memory of Mr. and Mrs. Greville Hampson took place on 
Sunday, May 6, and the ceremony was admirably executed. 
For the Dedication itself, the choir left their stalls and 
entered the Narthex along with members of the Hampson 
family, all getting a fine view of the window. Grateful 
dedication prayers were said and then at the close, the 
choir returned to their places to sing the fine anthem 
"Direct us O Lord." 

Canon Lawrence then delivered the sermon. He ex- 
pressed the School's thanks for the modestly presented 
stained glass window. His mention of the modesty involved 
in the presentation bi'ought to mind Saint John's strict 
acknowledgment of Jesus' continuous humility and suffer- 
ing in spite of the sharp and bitter criticisms he had to 

A very appropriate illustration of this was the scene 
depicted on the new window where Jesus first shows him- 
self to his disciples in their fishing boats. Humility in the 
extreme was displayed by Jesus in coming back to man 
from the dead when man had so cruelly rejected Him. 

Following the Recessional many of the congregation 
stayed behind to admire the beauty of the new window. 


At the service for Old Boys, parents and friends of 
the School, on Sunday morning, May 13, the Rev. J. F. 
Davidson, M.A. ('14-'17) spoke in Chapel. Mr. Davidson, 
who comes from New York city, emphasized the importance 
of bridges as links between the various suburbs of the city. 
They establish its unity. Many people fail to comprehend 
fully the significance of bridges and to apply this symbol 
of unity to their everyday relations with other people. Two 
kinds of bridges, one to promote better understanding among 
ourselves and the other to come closer to God, must be 
built by us. 


The main cause of human loneliness is superficiality. 
People fail to attain a full understanding of each other be- 
cause they don't reach deeper than outward impressions 
of their friends. In this way room-mates and married 
couples may live closely together but fail to reach the inner 
personality and they remain only close acquaintances. True 
friendship is attained to the fullest degree through simplicity 
and sincerity. This is the first bridge to be built — one which 
joins man to man. The second one, joining man to God, is 
often not built because some people fail to believe, if they 
don't see. Many people feel that concrete and material 
objects are the only things that they can believe in. But 
surely the converse is also true: that in believing one sees. 
God's side of the bridge is always there and it is up to us 
to build towards Him. The way to reach God is through 
prayer which is, really, good, clean silent, thought. People 
who have bridged this gap between man and God have 
then something in common. Then they can be Christian 
witnesses with their lives, and share His joy in serving 
their fellow men. By this they bridge the gaps and mis- 
understandings among men and dissolve the curse of lone- 
liness and ignorance so that they can work together and 
co-operate in God's name towards the common end. For as 
witnesses of God we are bridge-builders. Mr. Davidson 
closed with a prayer reminding us to return good for evil 
and to have a sincere regard for our fellowman. 


On May 20, Canon Lawrence spoke in the Chapel 
choosing as his theme "Winds." On the first Whitsunday 
the Apostles knew that the Spirit was given them by certain 
signs — one of these was the sound as of a great wind. 

Winds have always attracted the interest of men. Long 
ago, Virgil wrote about the Mediterranean winds; writers 
of Holy Scripture also expressed respect for the winds. By 
"a. strong, fast wind" the Red Sea was turned back and 


the children of Israel escaped from oppression. Such a wind, 
they declared, could be nothing less than the breath of 
God. "With the heat of thy nostrils the waters were 
gathered up, the sea covered them . . . O Lord, who is like 
unto thee?" So, at a great crisis, a wind had been the means 
of their preservation. The likeness of the Spirit to wind 
had been suggested by the Master. In the darkness in 
Jerusalem he unfolded to Nicodemus his great plan of a 
kingdom in which God would reign. But Nicodemus thought 
that a kingdom of ideas might be feasible for the young, 
but what about mature minds that were rigid and no longer 
adaptable? How could old men set out on a new venture, 
adopt new manners, and live a new life? Jesus said to him 
"Listen to the wind, there it is again!" Every summer night 
in crowded cities thousands of people lie down weary and 
exhausted. They are worn out with toil and they gasp for 
breath in the suffocating heat. But then comes the cool 
wind from the sea and they are refreshed and made fit for 
another day. Even so, in the realm of the spirit, the life- 
giving breath gives new life to all men. St. Paul in his 
Epistle to the Galatians said to his converts, "Walk in the 
Spirit!" What is that, but to get out into God's clean 
atmosphere, turn one's face into the refreshing breeze, and 
be refreshed by the life-giving influence of Him who said, 
"Behold, I make all things new." 


On Trinity Sunday, May 27, the sermon was given by 
the Rev. Canon C. J. S. Stuart. His text was from the 
Epistle to the Hebrews, the 12th. chapter and the first 
verse. "... seeing we also are compassed about with so 
great a cloud of witnesses let us lay aside every weight 
and sin, . . . and let us run with patience the race that is 
set before us." 

Canon Stuart is an Old Boy of the School and he told 
how he remembered School life. He remembered many of 


the boys who gave their lives in the Great Wars. To us, 
they are just a list of names; why do we remember them? 
The reason is that the dead are not really dead but only 
departed and are now living in a more wonderful world in 
the closer presence of God. We remember the spirit and 
manner in which these Old Boys died. We remember them 
in order to pass on their inspiration and unselfishness for 
generations to come. 

On Trinity Sunday, the speaker declared, the spirits 
of Old Boys surround us like a crowd of witnesses. They 
want to pass on to us the message that "we should fix our 
eyes on Jesus and struggle against the temptation of 
selfishness." No man has greater love than he who would 
give his life for others as Jesus did. Our lives should be 
marked by service to our fellow men and God. The Old 
Boys who died for their country and God answered the 
call of Jesus which we all receive: "take up your cross 
and follow me." 

After the service in Chapel the School followed the 
choir out to the Cross. Here Mrs. J. A. Campbell laid the 
wreath and the list of those who gave their lives was read 
by the Headmaster. The service ended by the playing of 
The Last Post and Reveille by the trumpeters. 


On Sunday, June 3, the Chaplain spoke to the School 
on the subject of borrowing and lending. For his text he 
took a section of the tenth chapter of St. Matthew which 
reads "From him who would borrow from thee . . . turn 
not away." Continuing, the Chaplain pointed out that the 
well known saying "Neither a borrower nor a lender be" 
could never hold true in T.C.S. where people continually 
borrow from one another. In Shakespeare's Hamlet, we 
know that Poloniun, who said these words, is not a pleasant 
person because of his suspicion of his children and also 
his vain belief that he was the king's adviser rather than 


the tool of the usurper of the throne. Polonius is not in- 
tended to instruct us but to amuse us and to be pitied. It is 
seldom safe to assume Shakespeare's thoughts from the 
words of this character for on the opposite side is Viola 
who is willing to lend. Most of Shakespeare's work is 
borrowed from others so we can assume he was likely to 
borrow and lend. 

In the world itself, how could commerce continue with- 
out people and countries — trusting one another and borrow- 
ing from one another. 

The Canon then noted that Christ said not to turn one's 
face from a friend who would borrow. He was born into an 
age which was impatient with borrowers and the people 
believed in the old-fashioned idea of "who goeth aborrow- 
ing goeth asorrowing." To the Hebrews, a borrower was 
the slave of the lender. These ideas show the type of world 
where charity had not come into human relations. People 
believed that poverty was like leprosy and was a sign of 
God's disapproval. The idea flourished in Christ's age that 
so long as you did well yourself others would think well 
of you. 

One notices that it is much easier to lend than to 
borrow and this is so because of exaggerated self-import- 
ance which makes one refrain from borrowing. There is 
great satisfaction in lending to others which is made pos- 
sible by borrowing. 

In closing, the Chaplain quoted Paul who said that no 
one can live or die of himself since independence is im- 
possible. We are obliged to borrow. We shall need a robe 
of righteousness someday without which we cannot move 
on. Our righteousness is in rags unless we are continually 
giving and receiving from others. 



A busy Term faced the Choristers after the Easter 
Holidays with four special services, important ones, to pre- 
pare, and those EXAMS! in the distance. The first service 
on May 6 was the Dedication of the Window given in 
memory of Mr. and Mrs. Greville Hampson. Psalms 9 and 
49 in the School Psalter were selected and the anthem, 
"Direct us, O Lord, in all our doings" (Brewer). 

Considerable time was spent with both Choir and School 
in rehearsing "The Old Hundredth" from the Coronation 
Service to be sung at Matins for the Old Boys and Parents' 
Service on May 13. Mr. Prower directed the drummer and 
trumpeters in the Gallery. Their enthusiastic assistance 
throughout helped to make this hymn very impressive and 
thrilling. We should like to mention the "Saunders" descant 
on the trumpet which was very fine indeed and most 
effective against the voices of the Choir. 

The weather kindly co-operated with us for the Mem- 
orial Service on Trinity Sunday. The first part of the 
Service was held in the Chapel and included a Nunc Dimittis 
by Healey Willan and Elvey's appropriate anthem, "The 
souls of the righteous are in the hand of God." The Choir 
gave a very sensitive performance of this without accom- 

Again the weather favoured us for Speech Day. Only 
a portion of the parents and guests could be accommo- 
dated in the Chapel, but those outside were enabled to hear 
the service by means of transmitters, which came through 
very clearly. This service was distinguished by some very 
excellent and sincere singing. The hymn "Praise to the 
Lord, the Almighty" was sung during the procession fol- 
lowed by Vaughan Williams' Introit from the Coronation 
Service, "O Taste and See." J. C. Tottenham soloed in this, 
his clear treble voice without accompaniment being most 
appealing. He was ably supported in the chorus work by 
the full Choir. Psalm 9 was chanted to a beautiful setting 



by Walford-Davies and Stanford's more robust setting to 
Psalm 62. The anthem, "O Gladsome Light" (Thiman), 
opened with a few bars on the organ foreshadowing the 
quiet entry of the baritone soloist, Head Choir Boy, Edward 
Long, who sang with ease, confidence and noticeably clear 
diction; a short organ interlude introduced the tenors and 
basses in harmony followed by the full Choir in a brief 
fugal movement. Another few bars on the organ introduced 
the final stanza in which the voices in unison and harmony 
move majestically along to a final joyous Amen with treble 
voices soaring. Pleasant music this with much commendable 
restraint by the tenors and basses. 

We should mention the two appropriately worded 
hymns which now are invariably associated with this 
Service, "Go forth with God," and "Now With Thanksgiv- 
ing." Both stir the emotions of all present and particularly 
the Leaving Hymn for those who are attending their final 
service as students. 

Speech Day brings about the very regrettable break-up 
of the Senior section of the Choir. At least fourteen Tenors 
and Basses, several of whom sang as Trebles when they 
first entered the Junior School, will be leaving. 

May it be some reward to them to know that their 
leadership, their willing efforts, loyalty and devotion to the 
Choir have been fully appreciated. Also their kind and 
thoughtful gesture of friendship in presenting the v/riter 
with a Record of the Messiah will be a source of much 
pleasure and keep alive many happy memories of many 
"great hearts".

During the Inspection Day Weekend and the Old Boys' 
Reunion, three commercial photographers from Toronto 
were at the School taking moving pictures of life at T.C.S. 
The film, a documentary in colour, depicts all aspects of 
School life. It is climaxed by the Old Boys' Reunion and 
its purpose is to afford a good example of the life of a boy 
at a school of this nature. It is, in effect, designed to show 
how one becomes an Old Boy of T.C.S. and it includes 
scenes in the classrooms, scenes in the sports field and 
scenes of all aspects of school life both academic and extra- 
curricular, including pillow fighting. In addition, a sound 
track has recorded the School choir as well as all other 
sounds typical of T.C.S. 

A total of twenty-six hundred feet of film was "shot". 
This will be reduced to approximately eight hundred feet, 
making a film of eighteen to twenty minutes' duration. 

The film has been sent to Rochester, New York, for 
processing and should be ready for viewing in about eight 
weeks. The photographers feel that with the whole-hearted 
co-operation of every member of T.C.S. concerned a very 
successful record of school life has been filmed. 



Amid the distant rumbles of thunder on the eve of 
Inspection Day, both the Senior School and Boulden House 
attended a recital in Osier Hall by this well-known orches- 
tra. After a short introduction the first two selections, 
"Strauss Fantasy" and "Malenguena," were played by the 
full orchestra. Next followed two vocals, "Deep in my 
Heart" and "One Night With Love," both sung in a soft 
soprano voice. These renditions were received enthusiasti- 
cally by the boys, as were the following violin solos on 
improvisations on a jig. 

After a short intermission the string quartet played 
"Drink to Me Only With Thine Eyes" and "La Mer." These 
two songs were well known to most of the audience, and 
were perhaps the favourites on the program. The two 
amusing songs, "Christopher Robin" and "Grandmother," 
concluded the formal program. Howfever, after a con- 
tinued round of applause, "Come Back to Sorento" was 
played as an encore. 

We hope to see the Searles Orchestra here next year, 
and we thank them sincerely for giving us such an insight 
into fine music. 


On Saturday, May 29, the Sixth Form had the privilege 
of hearing a short talk followed by a discussion on business 
by Mr. Robert Spence. An Old Boy of the School, Bob 
attended college and then joined the advertising depart- 
ment of Unilever Brothers Ltd., some ten years ago. Within 
this short time he has risen to a most responsible position 
in the firm. He emphasized the importance of a university 
education, preferably a general arts course, and then en- 
larged on the various types of business work associated 
with Unilever Brothers in particular. It was also pointed 
out that there is a great demand for capable and dependable 
business men, especially in Canada, with its tremendous 
industrial and commercial growth. 



In the summer of 1953 a post Speech Day award was 
made to a boy "who by his character and ability has been 
of much strength and yet has missed out on the top 

This summer it has been felt that such an award 
should go to D. A. Dunlap, for the School has been a better 
place because of his having been a member of it. 

The Headmaster has, therefore, decided to name D. A. 
Dunlap as the second boy to receive an Award of Merit. 


Presentations on Speech Day were made by the Govern- 
ors to Mr. and Mrs. John Dening (a silver salver with the 
School shield engraved on it), S. J. Batt (a similar silver 
salver), P. H. Lewis (a silver hot water jug), Mrs. Stephen- 
son (two silver frames), the Most Rev. R. J. Renison (a 
Dunhill pipe), and the Masters gave Mr. and Mrs. Charles 
Burns an English antique silver ladle; all were suitably en- 

The Headmaster in his report spoke about Mr. Lewis' 
and Mr. Batt's wonderful service to the School and hoped 
they would be with us for many years to come. Mr. and 
Mrs. Dening and Mrs. Stephenson are leaving the staff this 
year. In presenting the ladle to Mr. and Mrs. Burns the 
Headmaster mentioned the wonderful support Mr. Burns 
had given to the School throughout his years as an Old Boy 
and Governor and how he had been responsible for three 
successful campaigns, the Memorial Fund, the Sustaining 
Fund, and now the T.C.S. Fund. In addition, he had year 
by year helped the School in numerous other ways.

On Speech Day, Argue Mlartin, Q.C., Chairman of the

School with some amusing references to "being framed" 
and "after hanging being ready for the last post." It is a 
striking painting executed by Miss Stella Grier, daughter of 
Sir Wyley, who painted the portrait of Dr. Orchard which 
hangs in the Hall. Mr. Charles Burns and the Governors 
commissioned Miss Grier to do the painting last summer and

Dr. Ian Macdonald of Toronto, Head Physician at 
Sunnybrook Hospital and on the staff of the Faculty of 
Medicine at the University, very kindly spoke to twelve 
senior boys on the profession of Medicine. The gathering 
was an informal one in the garden of the Lodge and the 
exceptionally large number of doctors-to-be felt highly privi- 
leged to learn more about the practice of medicine and the 
training required for it from such an eminent authority. 
It was extremely kind of Dr. Macdonald to give up so much 
time to T.C.S. boys. 

We had heard rumblings of the preparations being 
made for the Old Boys' Weekend but Cadet drill and school 
work kept us too busy to concentrate much on such affairs. 
Then there was the constant bad weather, cold and rain, 
which seemed to be permanent and which all feared would 
dampen if not completely wash out any celebration. But 
May 12th turned into a lovely summer day, the first of the 
year, and the cars soon rolled in; over six hundred people 
registered and there must have been at least another five 
hundred who came for the Inspection and left early. In- 
deed, the two kitchens. Senior and Junior Schools, provided 
sandwich luncheon for over fifteen hundred.

There were movie men and press and Air Force photog- 
raphers: a special van was set up to develop and print 
photographs on the spot. A loud speaker truck gave direc- 
tions to the visitors and everyone was given a specially 
printed programme with a map of the town, and a clue to 
all the School buildings. The R.C.A.F. Headquarters band 
played on the terrace for an hour and a half during lunch; 
the marquee and another tent lent a festive air to the scene 
and after the Gym and P.T. display there was a reception 
at IdaHa for the adults and a "Coke" party for all the boys 
and their friends at the Tuck. A negro quartet from To- 
ronto entertained the boys and girls. After an excellent 
supper in Hall there was dancing until midnight in the 
Gymn, completely transformed for the occasion by the Fifth 
Form committee. 

Details of the Inspection are given elsewhere but the 
fly-past of Silver Star jets from Trenton must be mentioned 
again: it was the most expert and thrilling jet flying ever

largely made by committees of Old Boys in Toronto, par-

For the first time in the fifty-three years' history of 
the T.C.S. Ladies' Guild, a senior boy addressed the meet- 
ing. Mac Campbell, Associate Head Prefect, spoke on "What 
T.C.S. Means to Me" at the annual meeting on May 10th 
and the very large gathering was deeply impressed by his 
remarks. We take the following summary from the annual 
report of the Guild: 

He spoke with great sincerity and delightful humour. 
First he stressed the importance of some time spent in the 
Junior School, as this time is a wonderful introduction to 
life at T.C.S. and begins to create the citizen that the Senior 
School hopes to produce. Here the close supervision of the 
masters helps to suppress any undesirable characteristics 
and to develop the finer ones. 

He explained that the old type of fagging was out and 
that now the prefects have become more like counsellors, 
whose duty it is to help the new boy find his footing in the 
School and to give the guidance that produces a quieter, 
more conservative type of boy. 

He spoke of the value of harmonious living with others, 
the spirit of co-operation and the forming of lasting friend- 
ships. In general the spirit of the School is passed from the 
masters to the boys, but it is the boys who must carry on 
with their own decisions and initiative. 



In closing, he spoke with great enthusiasm and con- 
viction of the spiritual and reUgious feeling which was 
inspired in the boys by their time spent in Chapel and in 
religious studies, which he believed would stay with them 
through life. 


MAY 12 

Inspection Day dawned with the first real break in the 
weather of the season. The "weather forecast" that had 
been given in the T.C.S. News some weeks before had 
actually become a reality. 

At half-past ten the School squadron fell in, and pre- 
pared for the inspection by Air Vice Marshal Kerr. After 
the inspection had taken place, the School marched past 
and executed various manoeuvres. Next, the long-awaited 
House drill competition took place. Many visitors com- 
mented that they had never seen a more even and more 
keenly contested competition. It might be noted that both 
Houses were marching under extremely difficult conditions 
due to the heavy rains that had left the ground muddy 
underfoot. Fortunately, no mishap took place. 

After both Houses had competed, the annual panoramic 
photograph of the squadron was taken and the drill cup 
was presented. Although it was a close competition, Bethune 
House this year took the trophy. 

Luncheon was served at one o'clock. This year both 
the dining hall and a large marquee were used to try and 


ease the crowded conditions. At this point the R.C.A.F. 
Band was in attendance and provided some very enjoyable 

At two-thirty the Gymnastics and Physical Training 
display began. The whole show was done outside, enabling 
everyone present to watch it. After the display Air Vice 
Marshal Kerr gave a brief speech, commenting on the high 
calibre of the work he had seen that day. 

The Headmaster's reception took place at Idalia at 
four o'clock. Here, many old friendships were renewed as 
long separated Old Boys and friends were able to get to- 
gether once again. 

In the meantime a "coke party" was given for the boys 
and their dates at the Tuck Shop. We all sincerely thank 
the Old Boys and Board of Governors for making this party 
possible and also for enabling "The Revelairs" Quartet to 
be present and providing some first rate entertainment. 

A buffet supper was served in the dining hall at seven 

About an hour later an informal dance was held in the 
gymnasium. The decorations this year were without a 
doubt the best that have ever been produced at the School, 
the decorative theme being "Circus." Everybody present 
had high praise for the efforts of the Fifth Form boys who 
worked so energetically to make the dance a success. Music 
was provided by the affable Mr. Bob Gilbert. 

Many thanks must be given to all the kind people who 
contributed to making this day so successful. First of all 
we thank everybody who made the trip to Port Hope to 
watch our Inspection Day. Without these people our effort 
would have been wasted. We also thank the citizens of Port 
Hope who kindly assisted us in accommodating our many 
guests. R.C.A.F. Headquarters in Trenton should be thanked 
for sending a flight of Sabie jets which gave us such a 
thrilling fly-past. Lastly, Mrs. Clark and her kitchen staff 
should be thanked for providing throughout the whole week- 
end the extraordinarily good food, which everyone enjoyed. 






There was a sound of revelry by night as yet another 
Speech Day eve was upon us. The School year was drawing 
to a close. The night's activities were begun at 7.15 p.m. 
as the athletic prizes and trophies were presented on the 
terrace behind Trinity House. 

Following these presentations, the School retired to the 
Hall where the Choir and the Glee Club entertained us with 
the singing of School songs and also a few popular songs. 
The Choir began the programme by singing "There's a 
School on the Hill." The Junior School Choir then sang 
"To Lakefield in the Morning" and "At the Iron Bridge 
in June." The Glee Club then delighted everybody by sing- 
ing a selection from South Pacific — "Honey Bun" and then 
"Loch Lomond." Last year's Glee Club then sang "At the 
Mid-Hour of Night" the selection which they sang at the 
Kiwanis Music Festival in Peterborough last year. 

"Land of Hope and Glory" was then sung by the choir 
and the Senior Choir concluded the program by singing 
"Singing You Off." After the National Anthem the guests 
descended to the library for refreshments while the School 
saw a movie in the Assembly Room. 

The film, called "Strangers on a Train," directed by 
Alfred Hitchcock was thoroughly enjoyed by all. Finally, 
at eleven-thirty everyone retired to bed to await the dawning 
of Speech Day. 



Clearing morning skies gave promise of a warm, sunny 
day and plans went forward to hold the leaving ceremonies 
outside. It was indeed fortunate that the weather was 
favorable, for the several hundred visitors could not be 
accommodated in the Chapel for the Leaving Service, and 
were thus able to hear it through loudspeakers on the 

Prize-giving followed immediately after the Chapel 
service as the new Chairman of the Board of Governors, 
Mr. Argue Martin, introduced His Excellency the Governor 
General and then called upon the Headmaster for his report. 

After a very witty and informal address by His Excel- 
lency, the Right Hon. Vincent Massey, and the distribution 
of prizes, the Headmaster officiated while a number of 
presentations were made. On behalf of the staff, Dr. Ket- 
chum presented a gift to Mr. Charles Burns in recognition 
of his most loyal devotion to the School. Tribute was also 
paid to Archbishop Renison when Mac Campbell, repre- 
senting the School, presented him with a small token of 
the esteem in which he is held by all boys of T.C.S. Finally, 
presentations were made to Mr. P. H. Lewis and to Squadron 
Leader Batt both of whom this year completed thirty-five 
years of service. 




I am delighted to be able to foregather with you here 
today in this famous School. I feel very much at home 
within its precincts. Although I have never had any formal 
connection with the School, my association with it has been 
a happy one over the years, based on personal friendship 
with your Headmaster, and also because I have, for a long 
time, lived nearby, so today I feel that I am dropping in 
on the neighbours. 


I may say, and I am really addressing my few remarks 
to the boys whose splendid manners do not disguise the 
look of anxiety on their faces — that in the programme of 
my visits to institutions a variety of phrases are used with 
reference to what I say and how long I am supposed to take 
in saying it. One reads "The Governor-General will deliver 
an address" — that heralds the extreme form of the ordeal 
which an audience has to undergo. Slightly less formidable 
is "The Governor-General will speak" — you get off more 
lightly when that is said! Then there is this form "The 
Governor-General will speak briefly" — that brings a light 
of hope on every face — and then lastly — and what relief 
this gives — "The Governor-General will say a few words!" 
That is Class Four. You are in Class Four today, through 
a happy agreement between the Headmaster and myself. 

It is just as well, for there cannot be left anything new 
to say to the boys of a School on Speech Day. It would be 
an impertinence to exhort you to have a pride in your 
School. This great institution is one which inspires loyalty 
among all who belong to it. That is why it has flourished 
over the years as a justly famous School. 

It would be superfluous to remind you that your school- 
days are a preparation for the responsibilities of citizenship. 
You just naturally become good citizens in a School like 
this — not from studying books on Civics, but by living the 
life of a good citizen within the little world of the School 

There is no need for me to advise you to work hard 
and play hard — for that, I know, is in the tradition of Trinity 
College School. You would be the first to tell me that half 
measures are no good. What you do should be done with 
all your might. 

So I have disposed of anything I might be tempted to 
talk about to you except one thing and that is the traditional 
holiday which the occupants of my present post always 
request schools to give their pupils on their first official visit, 
I know quite well what you boys are thinking — "But he has 


done that before!" Well, so I have, but that was before I 
took up my present Office. You are also saying "We can't 
have a holiday now, because the summer holidays are just 
about to start tomorrow." Well, it is quite possible to put 
a holiday away, so to speak, in your school deep-freeze, and 
produce it in the Autumn Term when most of you are back 
again at work. Then, you will say, raising another objec- 
tion, "But that is not very fair to the boys who are leaving 
the School and will not be returning." There is no solving 
that problem, but remember the new boys who will be com- 
ing next term and will get the holiday without deserving 
it at all! There is thus a balance. One more point. You 
may take a last ditch position and say "We just don't like 
holidays because we don't like being shut out of school — 
school is far too much fun nowadays, and a holiday is not 
a reward, it's a punishment!" I confess that when visiting 
a school not long ago, I was conscious of that point of view, 
but that was my only experience of it. The school was in 
the High Arctic, and I found that the Eskimo children were 
not thrilled at the thought of a holiday — they found school 
very much more comfortable than their domestic igloos 
and they were unmoved. However, to be serious, I do not 
want to break a good tradition and so, if the Headmaster 
is willing, I would like as The Queen's representative, to 
ask that the boys of Trinity College School should on some 
convenient day next term, be given a holiday which I would 
ask them to remember as "The Queen's holiday." 

And now, I shall say no more, except to tell you once 
again, Headmaster, how much I appreciated your invitation 
to come here today and how happy I am to have been able 
to accept it. I shall leave with you my heartfelt good wishes 
for the School and everyone who belongs to it. 



Your Excellency, My Lord Archbishop, Mr. Chairman, 
Ladies and Gentlemen: 

When the representative in this country of Her Majesty 
the Queen visits a School it is indeed a red letter day and 
a memorable occasion: our ninety-first Speech Day will 
always be remembered as the day of the Governor General's 
visit. This is not the first time that the Right Hon. Vincent 
Massey has visited T.C.S. ; he spoke at a Speech Day before 
the war, he took the Salute at the Inspection of our Cadet 
Corps some years ago, he attended the Consecration of the 
Memorial Chapel, and he has come informally on several 
occasions, for indeed he is a neighbour. But we have never 
before been privileged as a School to welcome him officially 
as Governor General of Canada, and that we do now most 
sincerely and most warmly. And while expressing that 
welcome, may I say very briefly that we all admire the 
tireless, devoted way he has carried out his manifold 
responsibilities; no occupant of that high office before him 
has travelled throughout the length and breadth of Canada 
as much as he has, (and only a short time ago some of 
us heard him speaking from Aklavik in English, Indian 
and Eskimo ) , no Governor General has ever flown across 
the North Pole before, and it is unlikely that any Governor 
General anywhere has given a more intellectual lead to the 
people of his country through his many addresses and writ- 
ings. We were all glad to learn that his term of office has 
been extended. He will never be forgotten as Governor 
General, the first Canadian to hold that high office, nor as 
High Commissioner in London during the war, nor as first 
Canadian Minister to Washington, nor as Chairman of a 
very important Royal Commission, nor, indeed, as Chan- 
cellor of the University of Toronto and for so many years 
the guiding genius of that remarkable student centre, Hart 
House, his own idea and gift. We have with us a very dis- 
tinguished Canadian and we are deeply conscious of the 
honour he is paying us. 


A short time ago this School lost a most devoted Old 
Boy and Governor, Hugh Labatt. He and his brother John 
came here at the end of the last century and for fifty years 
and more they never forgot that a School like this must 
have friends and often needs financial support. Hugh 
Labatt had been a Governor for nearly twenty years and 
he took the utmost pains to attend meetings, to help with 
any problems, and to visit the School from time to time. 
But he will be chiefly remembered for his friendliness and 
constant willingness to help in any good cause; his old 
School will never forget him. 

It is always such a pleasure to have Archbishop and 
Mrs. Renison here and we welcome them with all our hearts : 
few men have rendered such service to Church and State 
as our own Archbishop has and we always glow with pride 
when we hear him speak of his only formal schooling at 
T.C.S. They have been outgiving all their lives and our wish 
now is that the future years will be full of happiness and 
deep content for both of them. 

The only living former Prime Minister of Canada is 
the Right Honorable Arthur Meighen, and he has greatly 
honoured us by coming to the School today. We know he 
wants to be with his grandson, a leading light in our Sixth 
Form, but we do welcome him most deeply, not only as a 
former Prime Minister but as one whose keen intellect has 
always seen through many complex problems and whose 
ready tongue puts the matter clearly, directly, and force- 
fully. He may be an elder statesman now but he is also a 
famous Canadian and we are very glad to have him at our 
Speech Day. 

The new Chairman of our Board, Mr. Argue Martin, is 
an Old Boy, a Governor for many years, a former member 
of the Provincial Legislature, a distinguished lawyer, and, 
not many years ago, the perennial Squash Racquets Cham- 
pion of Canada. He is also a Hamiltonian, a Tiger booster, 
and a former roommate at T.C.S. of the present Headmaster. 
His brother, his father, his uncles and many cousins have 


been at T.C.S., to the number of not less than thirty, form- 
ing one of our most loyal families, and now he is giving 
many, many hours of his busy life to our affairs and most 
generously supporting all our endeavours. We greet him 
and thank him from our hearts. Three new Governors have 
recently been appointed, Messrs. T. L. Taylor, C. F. Carslcy, 
and J. W. Eaton, and we welcome them most sincerely: 
they have already done much for the School. 

We have decided to change the name of the Junior 
School to Boulden House: it is no longer really a junior 
school as there are often boys up to fifteen years of age and 
in Grade 10 resident there. The new name is taken as a 
tribute to the first Housemaster of the Junior School in the 
building completed in 1924, the now Canon C. H. Boulden, 
M.A., M.B.E. Canon Boulden came to T.C.S. as a Master 
in 1913 and well do I, as a boy, remember how delighted 
we were to be in his classes, or to sit at his table. He thrilled 
us by playing all the games with the boys, and he was 
ordained Deacon while he was at T.C.S. We knew when 
his first sermon was to be preached in the School Chapel 
and I am sure we were as nervous as he was. Then he went 
to war as a Chaplain, a service he rendered again in the 
Second World War. For fourteen years he was a master at 
T.C.S., and for nearly ten years the much beloved House- 
master of the Junior School. He left us to become Head- 
master of Lake Lodge School and later Rector of a Church 
in Mount Royal. Because of illness he cannot be with us 
today but we assure him that all T.C.S. people are proud 
and happy to think that such an important department of 
our School is to bear his name. Boulden House has had an 
excellent year with a particularly fine group of lads — we 
congratulate the cricket team under Mr. Morris and Wurtele 
for winning all their School games. 

The Governing Body has introduced additional Scholar- 
ships and Bursaries which arc designed to make it possible 
for many more boys to come to T.C.S. whatever their 
parents' financial standing. Already we have seen the benefit 


of these new awards for a larger number of first-rate 
candidates tried our scholai'ship examinations than ever be- 
fore and the awards made are more numerous and more 
valuable than the School has ever found it possible to give. 
The top scholar coming into the Senior School and winner 
of the H. J. H. Petry Memorial Scholarship is A. O. D. 
Willows of Winnipeg, and the top scholar coming into 
Boulden House is D. C. Shewell of Ottawa. The T.C.S. Fund 
has begun to pour new life into the School in this way as 
in others. 

James House, acquired last year, has functioned well 
under the direction of Mr. John Gordon. He has an apart- 
ment downstairs and there are five rooms upstairs for some 
twelve boys. The newest boy is two days old and we con- 
gratulate Mr. and Mrs. Gordon. 

The kitchen was completely pulled to pieces last sum- 
mer and rebuilt and re-equipped as a thoroughly modern 
commissariat department. It has functioned extremely well 
under the direction of Mrs. Clarke and her capable staff. 

Last summer, senior boys ran our Trinity Camp again 
for less privileged lads from the cities and it was another 
unqualified success. Tony Ketchum was in charge of all 
arrangements, ably assisted by Terry Hall and Trevor Ham. 
I feel that this Camp is at once one of the most thoroughly 
enjoyable of our undertakings and one of the most per- 
manently rewarding to both boys and counsellors and I 
look forward to the possibility of running it for longer 
periods than we do at present. 

Shortly after the beginning of September the School 
received welcome news: The T.C.S. Air Cadet Corps had been 
awarded the R.C.A.F. Association Trophy for being judged 
the most proficient Air Cadet Corps in Canada. The beauti- 
ful Trophy was presented at the Air Cadet Annual Dinner 
in Toronto in the autumn and it has graced our Hall since 
then. The T.C.S. Corps scored 1988 points out of a possible 
2000. Most of the credit for this success must go to Squadron 
Leader S. J. Batt who has been in charge of our Cadets for 


35 years, Flight Lieutenant Armstrong, and the Cadet Offi- 
cers under David Osier. We give them and all members of 
the Corps our warmest congratulations. 

While I am on the subject of Cadets, I feel sure you 
would want me to express our appreciation of the truly 
excellent display given this year by the Corps under the 
command of Cadet Squadron Leader Michael Burns. It was 
the first good weather of the spring, a T.C.S. Cadet Inspec- 
tion never had so many spectators before, and the Cadets' 
exercises in the morning and afternoon earned them the 
utmost praise. The Band, under Peter Budge, should be 
specially mentioned. That whole week-end was a memorable 
one, so well organized by various committees of Old Boys 
and Parents in Toronto: we congratulate and thank them. 

This school year has been an outstanding one: blessed 
with a first-rate group of boys at the top of the School, 
every school undertaking seems to have gone well and there 
has been a fine spirit of wanting to work together for the 
benefit of the whole. 

One can make a quick run over most of the various 
undertakings of the year. The Record, The Choir, the care 
of the Chapel by the Crucifers and Sacristans, The Play, 
The Carol Service, The Christmas Plays, The Cadet Band, 
the various Clubs, seven of them, Debating, Public Speaking, 
Political Science, Dramatic, French, Pat Moss, Electronics, 
Photography, Crafts, The Entertainments, The Library, 
The Dance, The Fair, Debating, The Cadet Dance, Football, 
Hockey, Cricket, Squash, Swimming, Basketball, Gymnas- 
ium, Track, The new Football League, The Hockey League, 
and put "Excellent" opposite each one. We had a Dinner the 
other night for boys who had taken an active part in the 
many clubs or on the staff of the Record and over a hundred 
boys out of 185 in the Senior School were present. They and 
the Masters in charge deserve much praise. The Play Jour- 
ney's End deserves special mention: it was a performance 
which made a deep impression. The Prefects, House Prefects 
and House Officers have made the Student Government run 


smoothly and efficiently and they have given a splendid 
lead to the younger boys and helped them in many ways. 
That is the way a good tradition is so valuable and is carried 
on with much benefit. 

We have not won many Championships but the Foot- 
ball Team under Campbell's captaincy and coached by Mr. 
Hodgetts tied with Upper Canada for first place and was 
certainly equal to the best teams of former years, The Gym 
Team won the Invitation Meet at Etobicoke again under 
the leadership of Overholt and Mr. Armstrong, the Hockey 
Team under Eddie Long and coached by Mr. Humble played 
some of the best games I have ever seen and the Cricket 
Team under Mitchell and coached by Mr. White and Mr. 
Corbett came very close to winning all their games, just 
being nosed out by Upper Canada. We congratulate Upper 
Canada and Ridley on winning most of the inter-school 

The examination results and the year's standing for 
most of the School are better than usual and we are keeping 
our fingers crossed for the Upper School candidates; they 
should have more success than they think, but examinations 
are always unpredictable. Our Old Boys continue to bring 
honour to themselves and the School in so many ways and 
you will see in the Prize Books some of the successes won 
during the past year. Christopher Crowe has recently been 
declared the winner of an 1851 Scholarship. These awards 
are made by a committee in London to members of the Com- 
monwealth who have won distinction in graduate work. 
Two are given to Canadians and the winner may study for 
two years at any University he wishes and all his expenses 
and fees will be met. Crowe is indeed to be congratulated. 
Hugh Watts has won a most valuable Scholarship at the 
Harvard Medical School: he has been four years at Prince- 
ton on a Scholarship and had an excellent record there, 
doing first class work, being elected Chairman of the Com- 
mittee on Counselling, assisting in research on Sociology, 
and playing on the first hockey team.

Sandy Scott, who left us last year, was the first T.C.S. 
boy to win a Dominion-Provincial Scholarship: he was also 
given an Atkinson Award. 

Old Boys have now won 159 University Scholarships 
in twenty-two years and we have boys at some thirty-five 
Universities in various parts of the world. 

We were very happy to hear that a second Old Boy had 
been elected a member of the British House of Commons: 
Michael Keegan won the bye-election for the Northampton 
seat and is the second boy in my time here to win his way 
into the Mother Parliament, Ted Leather having been a 
member for five years. 

The Governing Body has appointed an Old Boy, Mr. 
Paul McFarlane of Montreal, to be Executive Assistant in 
charge of Old Boys' affairs. The T.C.S. Fund, and our 
relations generally with the public. He will also assist in 
screening applicants for admission. We welcome him and 
his charming family to T.C.S. 

A lovely window has recently been dedicated in the 
Chapel in memory of Mr. and Mrs. Greville Hampson, and 
the two small windows in the Gallery have just been in- 
stalled, given by Mrs. Duncan McLaren in memory of her 
two sons, Donald McLaren and Squadron Leader Bob Mc- 
Laren. It is indeed a privilege for the School to have such 
memorials, recalling as they do Old Boys whom many of 
us knew well, and we are deeply grateful to the donors. 

The Ladies' Guild continues to help us in so many 
ways and our deep thanks go to all members through the 
Presidents, Mrs. Arnold Massey, Mrs. Carsley, Mrs. Chaffey, 
and Mrs. Hodgetts of the Port Hope branch. 

The Memorial Chapel plays, I think, an ever deeper 
part in our life and its beauty and quiet, spiritual power 
must mean much to many of us. We have heard a goodly 
number of addresses this year which will linger long in 
memory and undoubtedly help to mould character. Among 
our visitors have been three Bishops, The Lord Bishop of 
Toronto, the Suffragan Bishop of Toronto and the Bishop 


in Korea. Through the kindness of Mr. Hall, and Mr. Matson, 
the Rector, the Choir visited St. Philip's Church, Weston, 
in November, the first time T.C.S. boys as a group had 
worshipped there since the School left Weston in 1868. It 
was a delightful experience for us and we are most grateful 
to all at St. Philip's for their kindness. Our Chaplain, Canon 
Lawrence, has worked out a plan whereby an aborigine 
boy in West Australia is supported by funds derived from 
the sale of many thousands of stamps contributed by the 
boys of the School, 40,000 this year. We congratulate him 
on this ingenious scheme and its good purpose. 

The really momentous School undertaking this year 
has been the institution of the T.C.S. Fund with a total 
objective by 1965 of two million, six hundred thousand 
dollars and by 1958 of a million dollars. The first figure 
adopted for 1958 was half a million but the response was so 
generous that the Committee decided to try to raise double 
the original sum in the first three years. A committee of 
the Governing Body under the Chairmanship of J. G. K. 
Strathy gave detailed study to the financial future of T.C.S. 
basing their discussions on a thorough report made by G. 
A. Brakeley and Company last summer. Mr. Strathy's Com- 
mittee were unanimous in their opinion that in these days 
of very high costs Independent Schools like T.C.S. must 
have considerable endowments for vital purposes which the 
fees cannot be expected to cover, such purposes being prin- 
cipally Scholarships and Bursaries, supplementing Masters' 
Pensions and Salaries, and some new Housing. Such en- 
dowments have been enjoyed for many years by practically 
all schools like T.C.S. in England and the United States. The 
Governing Body, at its meeting in January, adopted this 
view and immediate and widespread preparation began to 
be made for a campaign for this purpose. Mr. Charles 
Burns once again took over the Chairmanship of the Cam- 
paign; this is the third time since 1945 that Mr. Burns has 
headed drives for T.C.S. The Memorial Fund came shortly 
after the War and Mr. Burns directed it to complete sue- 


cess: our Memorial Chapel stands as a direct result of his 
and his assistants, efforts and the generosity of so many 
Old Boys and Parents of Boys. Then came the Sustaining 
Fund which enabled us to institute a new Scholarship, to 
build the new kitchen and generally to keep the School up 
to a high standard. And now we are making the greatest 
effort ever for T.C.S. So many of you have been magnificent- 
ly generous in your response already that I am sure I speak 
for all the Masters and Boys when I say that I only hope 
T.C.S. can always be worthy of your faith in us. As you 
know, I deeply believe that it would be an irreparable loss 
if any one of our well-known Independent Schools found 
it impossible to carry on because of unprecedented high 
costs; we are so truly trustees of a great inheritance given 
to us when we take over responsibility in any form for an 
Independent School or even when we send our children to 
one, and we must always see that such an inheritance is 
passed on in stronger condition to those that come after us. 
That is our great purpose. To Mr. Burns, Mr. Strathy, Mr. 
Hall, and the many others who are giving such inspiration 
in this campaign, T.C.S. will always be doubly indebted, 
for they are giving most liberally of their time and effort 
as well as of their substance. Charles Burns, a former 
Prefect and Head Prefect, Triple Captain, and winner of 
the Grand Challenge Cup, has in the thirty years he has been 
an Old Boy and Governor been the truest and most generous 
Old Boy any School could have; all I can say is that T.C.S. 
will never forget all he has done and is doing for the School. 
Mr. and Mrs. John Dening are leaving us this year: 
they joined the School family ten years ago and Mr. Dening 
soon won a reputation for the careful and conscientious 
way in which he carried out all his duties, for his beautiful 
lettering, and his witty remarks — when the electric bells 
became violently unpredictable he murmured something 
about "La Dame Belle Sans Merci" and when they expired 
altogether he was heard to nominate someone for "The No- 
Bell Prize." He has been Librarian for many years and 


he and his wife have run that important part of the School 
to perfection. As Housemaster of Bethune House he has 
been painstaking, understanding, and extraordinarily patient 
and helpful to boys: it is fitting that this year Bethune 
House should win more House triumphs than for many 
years. We shall miss both Mr. and Mrs. Dening but we are 
saying "Au revoir" in the firm hope that they will return 
before very long. 

Mr. Edward Cayley is leaving the staff of the Junior 
School for further study at Columbia University. He gave 
up a post in business six years ago to join us and he has 
been an excellent assistant to Mr. Tottenham. We hope that 
he, too, will return to the fold some day. I know of some 
twenty-nine T.C.S. Old Boys who are now teaching and about 
twenty of them were boys at T.C.S. after I became Head- 
master. I am always hopeful that more boys will find their 
way into a career which is so rewarding in the vital sense 
and which must be well manned if the new generation is 
to be prepared for all they will meet in a very rapidly 
changing world. 

We are losing our Junior School Nurse affectionately 
known as "Dear" to so many boys. Mrs. Stephenson has 
been ideal as a nurse matron and we shall always remember 
the countless ways in which she helped to maintain the 
health, good order, and general happiness of the Junior 
School boys. 

Mrs. Spencer, who helps so wonderfully with plays, 
tutors and occasionally takes classes in the Junior School, 
and also acts as part-time secretary in the Old Boys' office, 
has just recently been informed that her old College in 
Massachusetts, Curry College, has awarded her an honorary 
doctor's degree in recognition of the many services she 
has rendered in Canada and Japan since leaving Curry 
College. She is the first Canadian to be so honoured. We 
give her our warm congratulations. 


This report is once again longer than I wished but one 
cannot begin to cover a year at T.C.S. in a few pages and 
I have omitted much that might have been mentioned. 

Two members of our staff have this year completed 
thirty-five years of service. Mr. P. H. Lewis is Senior Master 
and quite often now Acting Headmaster. He is also Senior 
Science Master and I suspect that he is still the best Squash 
and Tennis player and the best Cricket batsman we have — 
perhaps he has to yield to Mr. Landry, one of his former 
pupils, in the Squash court. I have often said that T.C.S. 
is indeed most fortunate that a master of Mr. Lewis's 
character, integrity, scholarship and ideals of service, can 
be counted on under all circumstances to give the right lead 
and to give it in such an appealing and convincing way. No 
words of ours can ever convey to him the depth of our 
appreciation for all he has done and is doing for T.C.S. and 
with him we always couple Mrs. Lewis, the ideal wife of a 

I have already referred to Mr. Batt but may I add that 
when he joined the staff in 1921 our Cadet and Gym work 
had fallen on evil days. From the moment he took over we 
began to excel in those fields and he has maintained the 
standard ever since. His Cadets won every event but one 
at an inter-school tatoo held in Toronto some years ago, 
his Gymnasts have won Provincial and Dominion Cham- 
pionships, the Corps won the Imperial Challenge Shield for 
Shooting three times, and the Strathcona Trophy the year 
we were declared eligible for it. And this year he has seen 
our Air Cadet Corps declared the most proficient in Canada. 
We do congratulate and thank him from our hearts and 
wish him continued health and many more triumphs. 

I think I am speaking for all the Masters when I say 
that we do not expect to see another group of Senior boys 
more dependable, more friendly, more willing to do their 
best for the School, more aware of the underlying problems 
of life, or more anxious to do something for the good of 
mankind. This Sixth Form of 1956 will live long in our 


memories; they will be here for another two v/eeks and we 
shall see more of them, but on this Speech Day I do want 
to record the School's admiration for the lead they have 
given and the fine traditions they have strengthened. They 
know that devotion to a great purpose makes an ordinary 
man into an extraordinary man and that an independent 
and complete honesty is fundamental to strong character. 
May they always cherish those two qualities of devotion 
and honesty, and work in a spirit of fellowship for the wel- 
fare of humanity, remembering that every human being has 
a divine treasure hid in him. We shall always miss these 
lads but will watch their careers with a fatherly interest: 
our warmest good wishes go with them.

As the term quickly draws to a close, Otto brings up 
the trunks from the basement for the leaving class of Brent. 
Everything in the room of material value is placed in those 
trunks but the Brent House spirit still remains in the empty 
halls. Of course, you take a lot of that spirit with you. 
How could you ever forget the lass and her perpetually 
lost broom? Speaking of the lass and Scotland, several of 
Brent's departing tenants are going to Europe this summer 
with the Firechief. We wish them and all those Europe- 
bound "Bon Voyage!" 

But we can't forget those who are left behind. Many 
have answered the call of the wild and will be working at 
summer camps or in the bush while others will be pursuing 
jobs close to civilization. Wherever they are, they will be 
tackling their job with the T.C.S. spirit and that little "some- 
thing-extra" gained in Brent House. 

54 TRINITY colj:.ege school, record 

At this point we must congratulate Bethune House on 
an excellent year and their winning of the Inter House 

Brent House has had a great past and a great future 
lies in store for it. It is up to those who remain behind 
to strive to keep Brent House the house that it is. Good 
luck to all those who are leaving wherever they may be. 
They'll always have lots to talk about when they meet again, 
for in every year at T.C.S., something is gained and this 
year was no exception. They leave, the School a part of 
them, and so it will continue. 


There are strange things done in the house of Joe Dun, 

By the men who strive up-hill; 

The Bethune trails have their secret tales 

That would make your heart stand still. 

The corridor lights have seen queer sights, 

But the queerest they ever did see 

Was on Speech Day morn when out of a storm 

A van rolled up to the Bethune House form. 

It was covered with crepe and its size and its shape 

Made you wonder why it had come. 

Then at last you found out when with clamour and shout. 

Year '56 piled in with the trophies they'd won. 

CHICO and HERB, that old dirty bird. 

Led the happy parade through the door 

With a colour and might, and power and fight, 

Reminiscent of house games galore. 

HAPPY and DAVE, with a friendly wave. 

Dashed into the huge dark van. 

Then with the usual the gang followed in: 

They stumbled and tripped and laughed as they ran. 

BAA-WOOCE and BILL are carrying a still. 

And CY has just polished his skates. 

Oh! horrible sight, the KID's smoking a pipe. 


And the DRUNK 's raving about numerous dates. 

RUSTY and JERRY, the yanks who play pranks 

Have LITTLE MITCH strung up on the door, 

And TONE has DAG all tied up in a bag! 

Has this ever happened before? 

Big DAVE ROSS, he's been called "the Boss," 

Slinks up to ROBBIE from Mon-real, 

De butt in his hand tells you his brand 

But he doesn't mean it at all. 

ROACHIE and KERR (he's covered with fur!) 

Are smoking with the Sarnia SHARPIE 

And MIJ is the one who's having some fun 

Bouncing basketballs, at a party! 

BLUETT and ROBIN are doing some sobbin'— 

Surely they aren't sad at leaving — 

Early or late, you'll suffer that fate, 

You just can't part without grieving! 

The diesel gives a chatter, and EGGY runs after. 

As the van rumbles out through the gate 

HAMMY's encouraging (he's never discouraging) 

For, will Eggy make it or be late? 

The driver's theDUN, that should be fun. 

And the DOCTOR is giving directions 

"Look out for that tree . . . turn left? Let me see," 

Mrs. DUN smiles, and gives corrections. 

BLOCHO can be seen, repairing a machine; 

Oh!, to have scientific ability! 

BRUCE with his smile and talkative guile 

Tells JANITOR JOHN of religion's futility. 

As I whisper good-bye there's a tear in my eye, 

For the Old House will miss them, each one. 

There'll be fewer Joe Stalls and the corridor walls 

Will not echo the steps of JOE DUN. 

But still, when the storm wanes on a Speech Day morn 

They say you can hear a roar 

As a ghostly van pulling as hard as she can 

Rumbles up to the Bethune House door. 



It is filled to its girth with the spirit and mirth 

That was theirs throughout this long year, 

For in work and in play, on every school day 

They strove and conquered with unequalled good cheer! 


Stars glimmered overhead and a slight breeze whis- 
pered through the trees. Now and then a flash of heat 
lightning illumined the sky for a brief moment. 

The gravel crunched noisily underfoot as they walked 
brisky through the night air. Occasionally someone made 
a remark and the rest laughed. They had been walking 
thus far some twenty minutes when, on arriving at the 
entrance to a darkened laneway, they halted abruptly. A 
short consultation was held after which one boy left the 
group and began slowly to walk up the deserted lane. 

He was alone now, and the fear that had been gnawing 
at the pit of his stomach all night seemed suddenly to 
overwhelm him. Plodding along slowly, he gazed unseeingly 
toward the starlit heavens, turning over in his mind the 
previous events of the evening. 

The weekly meeting of "the gang" had been held that 
night, as usual, in the clubhouse. He, Johnny Miller, had 


been brought before the tribunal and his initiation assign- 
ment read. Now, he was on his way to carry out that 
assignment. At the time, it had all seemed very simple, 
but now he was frightened, really frightened! 

Abruptly, a rusty, aged gate loomed out of the dark- 
ness ahead. Through the gate, a dilapidated house stood 
silhouetted against the darkened sky. Johnny paused, glanc- 
ing furtively from side to side. From the woods, directly 
to the rear of the house, came the usual, eerie night sounds. 
He was now acutely aware of these sounds, and as he stood 
silently listening, the mournful howl of a dog drifted to 
his tense ears. 

Johnny shivered, then, swallowing with difTiculty, began 
to climb over the gate. Just as he was about to leap to the 
ground, he paused. His roving eyes had discerned an old 
sign, hanging haphazardly from one of the gate posts. 
Despite the semi-darkness, the half -faded printing could 
be made out stating emphatically: "Private, Keep Out." 

Now he wished that he could obey the sign, and turn 
and run back the way he had come. Even the taunting of 
the other boys would be easier to bear than this. With a 
tremendous effort, he summoned up his courage and drop- 
ping to the other side of the gate, proceeded toward the 
darkened house. 

It was now, more than any other time, that he must 
keep his head. The house could not be haunted! There 
just wasn't such a thing as a ghost; his father had told him 
so. But, at seven years of age, Johnny was more inclined 
to believe the weird tales that the other boys had gleefully 
recited to him regarding the history of the old house. He 
could still hear Mike saying: '. . . and this mean old man, 
he used to beat up his poor half-starved dog every day. 
But one day that dog he up and broke his chain and ripped 
his cruel master's throat; then he high-tailed it into the 
woods. The old man died and nobody even seen hide nor 
hair of that dog again. Everybody says though that they're 


just a-sittin' and a-waitin' for someone to come prowlin' 

Swallowing hard, Johnny pursued his way toward the 
front steps of the house and slowly, very slowly, began to 
climb them. Beads of perspiration stood out on his fore 
head and his legs felt rubbery. Tentatively, he projected 
his wavering hand toward the door knob, but then, just as 
it was about to touch, withdrew it. 

In his mind's eye he pictured an old man with a grisly 
beard and long fingernails, waiting to seize him the minute 
he entered the room. The urge to run descended upon him, 
and he felt that he must surely succumb to it. It was with 
great difficulty that he stayed himself. With a resolute 
hand he grasped the door knob and twisted it. 

The door creaked and moaned as he flung it open and 
stepped inside. The musty odour of the place assailed his 
nostrils, but he was unaware of it, for he had heard some- 
thing. Someone or something was in the room with him. 
He could hear breathing. Transfixed where he stood, quite 
unable to make a move to save himself, he waited for the 
end to come. Suddenly, a voice cried out, "Congratulations, 
Johnny! You made it."

Walking in the early morning through the country, 
when the birds have not begun to sing and the leaves are 
sparkling with dew, often have I stood in wonder at the 
sight. I can see dawn's heavy mist slowly open like a gate 
and beyond, far away, there is a heap of scattered, tired 
ruins. I have known them to be there, on that time-worn 
hill since I was a child. And they were there before, long 
before I ever walked there. 

No one ever goes that far, to walk among its moss- 
clad stones and wonder what has gone before. But I sit 
down and in my mind put stone on stone till ruins are again 


what they were I know not when. In its glory this castle 
was large and well fortified. Within its massive walls, then, 
there was life. It bustled, too, and had its care, worry and 
ambition. It struggled for supremacy and power. Like all 
things conquering, power needed greater power to maintain 
advantage and to rule. From these walls men ruled, some- 
times wisely, sometimes not so wisely. Under these walls, 
with banners flying high, human courage was rewarded 
with the grave and greater courage feasted over spoils. In 
supremacy, power then outdid itself and the great glories 
of an age grew slowly dull, declined and were forgotten. 

Now, I see, there is nothing left but crumbling walls 
and stones and dirt. They give growth to vines which 
clamber up and down and afford a nesting place for birds. 
As I get up to go I know that no one ever comes in awe to 
ask and only seldom in curiosity to see this monument to 
human courage crumble slowly to oblivion.

How I love these lakes 'round Chaffeys Locks 
With their sheltered shores and steep grey rocks; 
Where towering pines like sentinels stand 
Sedately surveying the surrounding land; 
And thick cedar boughs to the water bend; 
How cool and pleasant is the shade they lend 
To hungry black bass that patiently wait 
For the chance passing of fishermen's bait. 
Above me soft clouds drift lazily by, 
Now and then a seagull utters a cry. 
On vast rock walls the sunlight falls. 
Somewhere in the blue an osprey calls.

The little old car sat like a patient mule outside the 
South Porch most of the morning. The rain trickled down 
the dirty black surface, tracing little paths in the dust which 
they had picked up from the roads during the last summer's 
heat. The automobile was some thirty years old and very 
conscious of its age and weaknesses. Some who tried to 
drive it called it the hypochondriac. 

Bang! the glass chattered in the wooden ogees of the 
South Porch door. Armed with mackintoshes, two figures, 
one striding, one running, came down the granite steps and 
got into the car. It was Mrs. Nugent-Chandos and her sickly 
son Conrad. Conrad was going to learn to drive. Nothing 
happened for some five minutes. Evidently Mrs. Nugent- 
Chandos was explaining the intricacies of this venerable 
machine to her eldest son and heir. Then the car door opened 
and Conrad staggered with a crank to the front of the 
radiator. There he endeavored to startle the car into an 
animate state. An occasional cough was the only response. 
Conrad returned to the car and Mrs. Nugent-Chandos tried 
her hand at the cranking. The motor, like an answering 
friend, purred into life, only to stop a few minutes later. 
Mrs. Nugent-Chandos yelled at Conrad with most unlady- 
like vigour to keep the choke out. Soon, after a few apop- 
lectic starts, the engine again rose to the occasion. Anyone 
watching this ritual as I was from the room in the South 
Tower, would then have seen the ancient automobile nose 
slowly along the terrace and take the right fork which led 
to the road. Suddenly the silent rainy November day was 
shattered by a furious protesting grinding sound from the 
bowels of the vehicle. This was followed by a shudder and 
a rush. The car shot ahead bouncing from pot-hole to pot- 
hole, turned a perilous corner by the maze and disappeared 
into some bushes by the lake. The sound of crackling, pro- 
testing undergrowth and the hysterical "Stops" of Mrs. 
Nugent-Chandos reverberated through the rain. 

The Sons receive their wings.

Sometime later, after Conrad's death in the County 
Hospital and during Mrs. Nugent-Chandos' quick recovery, 
I found in the Maze copse a piece of square tin, which the 
garage must have overlooked, when they took the car to 
its own rusty grave. After scraping the leaves and woodlice 
away from the square, I saw a large red letter "L" with 
hardly a scratch on its shiny surface, designating one who 
is learning to drive. 

"How symbolic," I said to myself throwing it with a 
splash into the nearby lake.

The day was muggy 

And tickling trickles of sweat 

Rolled down my chest. 
My companion of wood and steel 

Pressed damply against my leg. 
I wiggled my toes, and twitched my nose 
But tried not to show it 

Chest out, eyes fixed 
A wooden soldier made of sticks 

I stood 
While piercing eyes surmise 

The nature of my uniform. 
They're gone, thank God, 

But head, don't nod 

Gosh! I feel sick 

Had I better slope arms 

And march away? 
No, face it man, if others can. 

If only my brain would not whirl! 
Are you a girl? 

Oh blessed ground, come up to me. 


Left Turn, Quick March! 
You made it, fellow. 
Best try to test what mettle 
Is your standard. 

Than lie, 
A coward on the grass.

Have you ever had a strong dislike for a food and 
wondered where that dislike originated? You may have 
liked it at one time but for some unknown reason your mind 
now rebels against it and you re-echo the thought by saying 
"None for me, thank you" or "Never touch the stuff," when 
it is placed in front of you. Perhaps, however, the "rare 
treat" which is put before you is something which does 
not agree with your delicate system and you know the fact 
only too well from past experience. You may be strongly 
allergic to pickled onions, or perhaps the smallest bite of 
potato salad sends your stomach for a somersault. Olives 
may leave you with a plight of indigestion or wine on an 
empty stomach may make you feel grouchy. You are quite 
aware in each case, however, of the underlying reason for 
your strong antipathy to the things mentioned. What you 
don't know, though, is why the very mentioning of kippered 
herring creates visions in your head of a family of snakes 
trapped in a pot of water, why the sight of creamed celery 
has a weakening effect on your whole system and why you 
have never been able to let the horse radish remain any- 
where near you on the dinner table. Is it the result of an 
association of ideas? Certainly it must have something to 
do with your mind, because creamed celery never really 
did you any harm and the kippered herring you were obliged 
to eat at the Mayor's house had no ill effects on you after- 
wards. Given your choice though, you'd steer well clear of 
them all, even though others scorned you for turning down 


some of what they call the "rarest delicacies known to 

When most of us were young, what was put before us, 
in the way of food, we had to eat, or we found ourselves 
going without our dessert. 

Father, eyeing a large portion of vegetable, left un- 
touched on our plates would lean over and order "Son, eat 
your turnip." What father said, father meant, and our turnip 
was unwillingly devoured. However unfair and cruel it may 
have seemed to us at the time, this was one of the best 
trainings we ever received. Then it was that we learned to 
like things even though our minds kept repeating the same 
curses and oaths. Here we acquired a taste for a great many 
things which we might otherwise have spurned with delight. 

Despite our excellent training we ate many foods, dis- 
liked them intensely, and never touched them again. From 
this, I think, we are to be excused, for everyone has their 
likes and dislikes. But those who, never having tried a 
certain delicacy, or indeed seen it, will hold forth in con- 
versation about their dislike for it, instilling the same false 
opinion in the minds of others around them, are guilty of 
an inexcusable crime. The people never did have the courage 
to swallow the sheep's eye, a delicacy of the Middle East, 
nor to eat caviar when in France. They couldn't even think 
of the idea of chewing on a tasty beetle or making a meal 
of frogs' legs. Most of them have never seen a can of pickled 
rattle-snakes, yet they would merrily tell their friends that 
it is something the Borgias would have hesitated to serve 
to their Italian dinner guests! These are the people who 
fail to realize, that, to be able to legitimately proclaim their 
dislike for something, they must try it first ; they must pass 
the initiation; they must read the book, so to speak, before 
they criticize its contents.

At Port Hope, May 5. 

On the first fine day for some time, T.C.S. obtained a 
draw in their opening match against ihe Toronto Cricket 
Club. T.C.S. batted first with Campbell and Hyland hitting 
28 and 32 respectively. T.C.S. declared at tea time with 133 
runs. Hamilton scoring 19 not out and Whitehead 3 not out. 
The opposition's bowling was a bit scrappy, but Chappell 
took 4 wickets for 16 runs. 

The T.C.C. top performers were Anderson with 35 runs 
and Chappell with 23. T.C.S. fielded well, having taken 8 
wickets for 83 at the close of play. 


At Port Hope, May 13. 

This game had to be played virtually in the mud, but 
the spectators helped cheer T.C.S. on to a crushing defeat 
over their fathers and Masters, and a few Old Boys. T.C.S. 
batted first. No spectacular scores were produced other 
than 23 by Winnett who hit best on his father's bowling. 

T.C.S. fielded incredibly well. Winnett took 3 wickets 
for 5 runs and Mitchell took 3 for 10 runs. Mr. Landry 


swung hard at everything that came to him, but was bowled 
for 4 runs by Mitchell. His last words were, "Wait till the 
Masters' Game." 

T.C.S, vs. ST. EDMUND'S 

At Port Hope, May 19. 

In a low scoring game against St. Edmund's, Trinity 
won the match by six wickets and sixteen runs. 

T.C.S. took the field first and Hyland took two fast 
wickets for an equal number of runs. Carter then hit 20 
runs for the visitors. Trinity's fielding was very smart, as 
they moved in on each bowl and thus prevented St. Edmund's 
from capitalizing on most of their short hits. 

After the tea break at 4:30, T.C.S. went in to bat. Seag- 
ram was Trinity's best batter for the afternoon, as he scored 
19 not out. Cape was second high man with 13 runs not out. 


At Port Hope, aiay 21. 

Trinity opened the batting against Grace Church in 
their final exhibition match of the season. Winnett batted 
well for the School making 39 runs. Later, Hamilton and 
Cape made an excellent stand after lunch. Hamilton was 
bowled for 23 runs, and was followed by Cape for 18. The 
visitors' bowling had excellent length and they made good 
use of their fast breaking spins as Brazier took two wickets 
for five runs and Hirst took three for fourteen. 

Trinity's bowling was above average but the opposing 
batsmen were not to be denied. Cole played a steady game 
knocking up 39 runs, and then Hirst scored 53 before re- 
tiring in the second to last over. 

The final score was T.C.S. 102; Grace Church 121. 


T.C.S. vs. ST. ANDREW'S 

At Aurora, Saturday, June 2. Won 61-60. 

In their final contest of the Little Big Four season, 
Bigside visited St. Andrew's College. S.A.C. batted first and 
early in the afternoon were all out for 60 runs. They didn't 
start off well as their first three men went out for 2 runs. 
But Ketchum and Buchanan made a great stand for S.A.C. 
as they scored 39 runs between them, getting 23 and 16 
runs respectively. Sichel also batted well for the hosts, 
picking up 10 runs. Winnett was the most damaging bowler 
for the school, taking 6 wickets for 17 runs and making an 
average of 2.8 runs per wicket. 

In their innings, S.A.C. declared after making 61 runs. 
T.C.S. started off slowly, but the opening batter, Mitchell, 
stayed in all afternoon to make 31 runs, enabling the 
School to win 61-60. Seagram also batted well, making 
13 runs. The best bowler for the hosts was Gray, taking 
5 wickets for 30 runs with an average of 6 runs per wicket. 

Both teams played very good cricket, making the last 
game of the season very exciting.

At T.C.S., Wednesday, Ittay 30. Lost 96-99 
T.C.S. played host to U.C.C. in Trinity's second Little 
Big Four game. U.C.C. won the toss and put T.C.S. in to 
bat. The first wicket fell only after a 54 run stand by 


Mitchell and Winnett, Winnett making 33 runs. The U.C.C. 
bowling was steady and accurate. From there on the 
wickets fell quite quickly, Trinity closing their innings with 
96 runs. 

The famous U.C.C. opening stand was broken when 
Winnett got Tovell l.b.w. But their third batsman stayed 
in and 38 runs were made before the next wicket fell. Al- 
though the U.C.C. fielding wasn't as good as that of Trinity, 
their batting was steadier.

At U.C.C, Saturday, May 26. Won 65-53 

This being the first Little Big Four game, both teams 
were keyed up. Trinity won the toss and went in to bat. The 
first few batsmen went out with few or no runs, although 
Frank Stephenson managed to knock up eighteen runs with 
good hits. The last Trinity wicket fell shortly after lunch, 
the School having made 65 runs. 

Trinity did some very determined fielding and that, 
with excellent bowling by Mitchell and Winnett, kept the 
runs down. When seven wickets had fallen for 44 runs the 
fielding became tense. The last wicket was taken by Win- 
nett when Ridley had only to make 10 more runs. 

The final scores were Trinity 65, Ridley 53.

At Port Hope, May 5. 

Middleside showed great promise as they drew with 
the Toronto Cricket Club Seconds in their first game of 
the season. The visitors batted first, and Gerrard and Wig- 
ley proved to be their most potent bats as they scored 53 
runs between them. The T.C.S. bowling was scattered over 
seven members of the team with Minard producing the best 
performance, taking three wickets for 17 runs. 

In the School's innings some very good batting was 
seen. Stevenson i scored 18 runs retired, and English scored 
15 runs. Long proved to be the most damaging bowler for 
the visitors as he obtained an average of 4 runs per wicket. 
As the innings progressed the T.T.C. were unable to retire 
the remaining T.C.S. batsmen, and the match ended in a 


At Port Hope, May 19. 

In their second match of the season Middleside emerged

runs all out. Their best batter was their opening man Anger

bowler as he took five wickets for 12 runs. 

The School started off very slowly in their inning as 
Williams of St. Edmund's took two wickets for two runs. 
However, the bottom half of the batting order made a good 
stand, and they were able to squeeze past their opponents 
in a very exciting finish to win 58-56. Wigle i was the best 
batter for the School with 19 runs. 


At Port Hope, May 21. Lost 97-45. 

In their third game of the season Middleside played 
host to Grace Church seconds. The visitors batted first in 
the morning and were all out by mid-afternoon with 97 
runs. Their win was due mainly to the batting of Martin 
who got 34 runs. Larter and Alliban also batted well getting 
18 and 13 runs respectively. The best bowler for the School 
was Minard who took 2 wickets for 12 runs. 

In their innings, the School started off very poorly as 
they had at one point 5 out for 6 runs. But the batting of 
Lash and Thompson, who knocked up 12 and 11 runs re- 
spectively, enabled the School to get 45 runs. The most 
damaging bowler for the visitors was Brown who took fi->'e 
wickets for no runs. 


At Port Hope, May 26. Lost 59-53. 

Middleside played host to the Port Hope Cricket Club 
in their last game of the season. The School batted first and 
did very well, declaring with 53 runs. Noble was the School's 
leading batter with 19 runs. Drive and Fishlock proved to 
be the best bowlers for the visitors with each having an 
average of 1.5 runs per wicket. 

In their innings, the visitors obtained 59 runs due 
mainly to the batting of Fishlock and Treasure with 21 and 
17 runs respectively. The most damaging bowler for the 



School was English who took 3 for 18 making an average 
of 6 runs per wicket.

At Port Hope, May 19. 

For their first match of the season, Littleside was suc- 
cessful in defeating The Toronto Cricket Club Juniors by 
a total score of 108 to 92. T.C.S. played well and showed a 
lot of spirit as they retired the visitors with only 21 runs. 
The Trinity batsmen made an excellent showing as they 
made 55 runs for only 5 of their wickets. Littleside then 
retired in favour of second innings. 

The Junior Batsmen then made a much more favour- 
able stand as they ran up 72 runs for only 2 wickets. Taylor 
had the best bat for the Juniors, as he scored 43. Knight 
was always consistent for T.C.S,, 16 and 11 not out and 
also taking 3 wickets. 

When stumps were finally drawn, T.C.S. was victorious 
by the narrow margin of 15 runs. 



On Saturday, June 23rd, a team composed of former 
members of Independent Schools* cricket teams played an 
Ottawa Valley Cricket Council team at Rideau Hall, Ottawa. 
Representatives from T.C.S. were Iain Mitchell, Captain of 
our team, Derek Drummond, and Richard Wotherspoon who 
kept score. Iain Mitchell took 6 wickets for 51 runs, the best 
bowling average, and he also made the top score, 28 runs; 
John Bassett of U.C.C. was next top scorer with 9 runs. The 
Ottawa team defeated the School's team 165 to 76. The 
Governor General visited the game and met some of the 

The Independent Schools are indebted to Mr. Perry 
and Mr. Powell of Ashbury for making these arrangements 
and we hope this match will turn into an annual event; it 
was a most kind thought and happy occasion. 


On Wednesday, June 6, Brent House defeated Bethune 
by the score of 94-33. A two hour batting time was allowed 
by each side. For Brent, who batted first, Eric Stephenson 
was top man with 18. Others were M. Meighen and D. Cape 
each with 15. Mitchell i was Bethune's top bowler taking 8 
wickets for 39 runs. 

After a ten minute break, Bethune went in, led by 
Captain Ian Mitchell who made 23 before being bowled by 
Bert Winnett. The best bowler for the victorious side was 
Winnett who took 6 wickets for 19 runs. Bill Whitehead 
took 3 for 10. 


On a hot June 7 a very close Middleside House game 
was played. Bethune batted first making 48 runs, led by 
Minard and English with 10 runs apiece. Stephenson I bowl- 
ed well taking 5 wickets for 18 runs and Scott took 3 for 23. 


Led by the batting of Stephenson I with 20 runs and 
Kennish with 17, Brent amassed 50 runs for 7 wickets. The 
remaining Brent wickets fell for no runs due to the bowling 
of Thompson I with 5 for 17 and English with 3 for 11. Thus 
at game's end Brent emerged the winner by two runs in an 
exceedingly well fought match. 


This year's Littleside House cricket match was a very 
closely contested game with Bethune House ending up the 
victors. The final score was 51-49 and Cundill and Wilkin- 
son were the high scorers of each team batting 12 runs each. 
Bogert for Brent and Crowe and Black for Bethune had the 
best bowling averages. Bethune House fielded exceptionally 
well and managed to keep Brent's score down and, with only 
two runs separating the two teams, they managed to take 
the last wicket. 


This year's Senior Tennis Tournament produced some 
of the best singles tennis to be seen at T.C.S. for some time. 
Several matches were so close that the outcome was not 
decided until the last two or three games. Special recognition 
should be given to Budge, Seagram, and Drummond who all 
played top notch tennis. Drummond and Seagram played a 
hard hitting and well contested match in the finals with 
Seagram winning 6-4, 7-5. 

In the Doubles Tournament, P. G. Barbour ii and Drum- 
mond reached the finals by defeating Cape and Gurney, 
while Knight and Seagram put out Budge and Bogert. In 
the playoff, Knight and Seagram emerged victors, winning 
6-4, 4-6, 6-2. 




Held on May 25, Sports Day was extremely successful 
this year as six new records were set and one old record 
was equalled. Also, Bethune finally won the House trophy 
with 184 points to Brent's 139. Brent had some fine runners 
but Bethune with their older track stars, helped out by 
many up and coming New Boys managed to pile up a good 
lead over their rival House. As we say good-bye to speed- 
sters like Ferrie, Jenkins and Hyland, we see many fast 
Juniors and Intermediates filling in, such as Hart and Crowe 
who starred in the Junior and Intermediate Aggregates.

Congratulations to the Cricket XI on their unbeaten 
season. They played well as a team and thoroughly deserved 

Our sincere thanks and good wishes go with Mrs. 
Stephenson. "Dear" has earned herself a permanent place in 
the hearts of all the Junior School boys of the last nine and 
a half years. We will miss both her skill as a nurse and 
also her ready help and advice at all times. The very best 
of luck to her. 

It is six years since Mr. Cayley came back as a Master 
to the School after a number of years in it as a boy. His 
skill as a teacher and a coach, coupled with his loyalty to 
the School and high sense of duty, have made him a valued 
member of the Staff. Good luck to him and our thanks. 
We will miss him too. 

"Vale" the Junior School and "Salve" Boulden House. 
May we be worthy of the fine man whose name we will 
bear in September. 


From time immemorial men have sought freedom and 
the right to live in the best possible way. 

At times men have united to form societies and even 
civilizations on these principles. Ancient Greece and early 
Rome are prime examples of these attempts, but, always 
until the last two hundred years the bright sword of the 
free has become tarnished with greed and personal malice 
and, in the end, broken altogether. 

Then, years ago, England and later France and the 
Americas started moving in this direction and the idea of 
elected, responsible government spread slowly over Europe. 
It was not an easy change. Civil war, bloodshed and revolu- 
tion were the methods and in France the idea so nobly born 
crumbled for a time into what amounted to an absolute 


dictatorship. The final metamorphosis occurred in the late 
1800's and since that time, through war, argument and 
social conflict, Freedom has maintained its lofty position.

The sun has risen. 
And up I get, 
To see if I can conquer 
What lies in front of me. 

I briskly start 

In the cool morning air. 

Up through forest covered slopes; 

Now the trees 


And fall back, 

But I go on 

Between rocks, along ledges. 

Over ice and snow. 

And around one hair-pin turn 

With a five thousand foot drop, 

I see the top. 

I start to edge my way along 
But suddenly I slip and fall, 
Now I am in a paradise; 
I have conquered all. 

— p. J. Paterson, FormllAl. 


X-rays were first discovered in 1895 by a German 
Professor, Wilhelm Koncad von Roentgen, who lived from 
1845 to 1923. Roentgen was experimenting with charges 
of electricity in a glass Crookes vacuum tube. When the 


current was put through the tube, which was shielded with 
black paper, beautiful colours were produced. Nearby 
Roentgen placed some barium platinocyanide crystals on 
a piece of cardboard. These crystals are fluorescent or, in 
other words, glow when light is put on them. Roentgen 
noticed that the crystals glowed when the electricity was 
put through the vacuum tube even though all visible light 
was screened off. He also noticed that objects between the 
tube and the crystals cast shadows on the crystals when 
the current was turned on. 

Experimenting further, he found that he could "see" 
through skin and flesh but bones and pieces of metal made 
shadows on his screen. Roentgen concluded that this must 
be the work of certain rays that will penetrate some sub- 
stances but are partly stopped by others. He didn't know 
what kind of rays these were so he called them X-rays.

The pine, against the setting sun. 

Stands majestically in ever increasing splendour, 

Its fingers, spread out above the earth 

Pointing to the West 

Where wind and rain have gone before. 

The needles lie about its feet 

Marking the ground like a green blanket 

And all the while the birds are quiet in their nests 

Telling of the closing of the day. 

— T. R. Price, Form m. 


Jai Alai is known as the fastest game. It is the National 
Game of Basques and is played throughout the Spanish 
Provinces. It is a very fast and skilful game. 

Jai Alai is played indoors and outdoors. The ground 
they play on is very smooth and hard. It is usually about 



two hundred feet long and sixty feet wide. High walls 
enclose both ends and one side. 

Bound to one wrist with a leather thong is a cesta. The 
cesta is a curved, basket-like scoop, a little more than a 
foot long, by means of which the ball is caught and thrown. 
The ball is about the size of a tennis ball. It may be held 
in the hand but must be kept in motion. 

— J. L. Vaughan, Form IIB2. 


A morsel of something feverishly presses 

against the surface of the earth, 

fighting, ever fighting, to gain the top when, 

suddenly from some hidden corner deep inside itself, 

there comes that new-found strength 

that finally, 

in one last agonizing moment of effort, 

sends it bursting through that sunbaked shield of soil 

to the clean, fresh air of Spring! 

Beaming up in triumph at the sun, 

the sun, sincerely pleased, beam.s brightly back. 

—P. T. Wurtele, Form III. 


Today there are fifty-two cards in a deck of cards. 
They are divided into four suits; spades, hearts, diamonds, 
and clubs. Each suit has 13 cards and three face cards — 
king, queen and jack. The cards from two to ten are called 
spot cards and an ace takes the place of a one. The backs 
of the cards are usually designed with colourful pictures 
and designs. 

Of course, the cards used in early days were not like 
the modern cards of today. The cards used in India, China 
and Egypt, before the Crusades and right up to the four- 


teenth century, were similar in shape and size but different 
in design from the kind we use today. 

The German and French pack consisted of seventy-eight 
cards. They were divided into four suits marked with bells, 
leaves, acorns and heralds. They seldom had an ace so 
that the spot cards were numbered from one to ten, with a 
king, queen, chevalier and valet taking the place of the 
higher groups. There were also twenty-two emblematic 
cards that were used to foretell the future. It was only at 
the end of the sixteenth century that the French started 
to use the spades, heart, diamond and club designs. 

In the meantime, things in Italy and Spain were slightly 
different. The shapes of the cards were about the same 
but the symbols were entirely different. Instead of using 
clubs, hearts, etc., they used swords, batons, cups and 
money for suit marks. 

Unlike the late fourteenth century, playing cards are 
now approved by both the church and the gamesters. The 
games bridge, poker, whist, Black Jack, and many others 
including solitaire, are all played with cards. They are 
some of America's most popular indoor games.

No sun, no blue sky. 

The air is sticky and humid. 

Black clouds make the sky as dark as night 

Yet it's still quite early in the afternoon. 

All is very quiet. Then a crack! 

Breaks the silence and the rain pours down 

Upon any unfortunate living thing, 

And saturates everything out in the open, 

A wind lashes out at high-standing things 

And creates an overhead whirlpool. 

Then as quickly as it started 

The rains cease, 



The wind turns into a meek little breeze 
And the clouds give way to the glorious sun. 
Thus ends a mid-day storm. 

— C. J. Tottenham, Form IIAl. 


Once a village 

in a valley, 

now a ghost town below 

the water; 

it has changed its clothing, 

yet the character 


But the poor man 

watching the march of 



if, and how soon, he will be 


out of home 


— M. A. Turner, Form IIAl. 


This animal is about the size of a rabbit and lives in 
the forests of South America and in the West Indies. It 
has slim legs and looks something like a small antelope 
and can run verjr fast. There are great varieties in colour 
but it is usually olive brown with yellow-orange hind- 
quarters. When he is startled, his brightly coloured patch 
of hair opens out very clearly. This is known by some as 
a signal warning others of danger and pointing out the 
direction they should follow. 

During most of the day, the Algoutis lie hidden in 
hollow trees or in holes, and come out in the early morning 


or at night to eat such things as leaves, plants and fallen 
fruits. They can stab the toughest nuts with their sharp 
cutting teeth. They eat such things as sugar-cane and 
bananas in districts which are cultivated. They are lively 
animals, trotting or springing along at high speeds. They 
can swim well but cannot dive. 

These animals are hunted a great deal for their flesh, 
but if caught, they will live well in captivity. 

— S. M. Hart, Form IIB2. 



Captain of Cricket P. T. Wurtele 

Vice-Captain J. L. G. Richards 

The Cricket XI of 1956 is to be congratulated on an 
unbeaten season. The competition in all the matches was 
good and the scores in at least a couple very close indeed. 

Our bowling was exceptionally strong this year and 
the fielding also set a high standard. There was some good 
batting and this was generally steadier than in many a 
past season. 

Ridley as usual produced an exciting game at the 
Cricket Club and the issue was very much in doubt until 
the end of the game.

A. R. "Bert" Winnett, President of the T.C.S. Old Boys' 
Association issued a progress report on the T.C.S. Fund 
in which he stated that he was happy to report that gifts 
and pledges to date — June 16 — totalled more than $500,- 
000.00. This is a worthwhile start towards the overall goal 
of $2,625,000.00. 

The initial success of the T.C.S. Fund highlights some 
really outstanding special gifts as well as an amazingly 
strong response from Parents (other than Old Boys) of 
past and present boys. At this time response from Old Boys 
across the country has been slower than from other groups. 
This is understandable in view of the great amount of work 
involved in contacting people personally. However, the ulti- 
mate success of the Fund will depend upon the support of 
all of us. 

It was decided at the last annual meeting of the Old 
Boys' Association to discontinue the payment of annual dues. 
All Old Boys will in future belong automatically to the 
Association and will receive all published information. It 
is hoped that the relief from annual dues will help signifi- 
cantly in meeting the Fund Objectives.

When one of the many visitors to the Osier Library at 
McGill enters the door of this beautiful haven of medical 
knowledge he is greeted by a courtly man of average height, 
a twinkle in his eyes, his hair receding from the front of 
his head. "Good morning," he says, "What could I help you 
with?" And then he greets you familiarly if he has known 
you before, probably takes you to a recess where he proudly 
displays one of the very valuable manuscripts he has been 
re-examining or shows you a memorandum he has just writ- 
ten on some point of Osier's life. From then on his time is 

'Billy' Francis, as he was known at T.C.S. , probably 
knew the great man, Sir William, better than any other liv- 
ing person: he is Sir William's cousin and he lived at Sir 
William's home for many years; Sir William always refer- 
red to him as his nephew. It was he who was asked by 
Lady Osier to catalogue the library at Oxford after Sir 
William's death and he has been the only librarian of the 
famous Osier library since its inception in 1929. He served 
overseas during the first war and he has studied Medicine 
in Montreal, Baltimore, London, Berlin, Vienna, Paris. He 
is famous for many reasons, not the least of which is for 
his delightfully witty letters. In notes to the Headmaster 
he always signs himself 'mundo-corde-ally' and the letters 
are always full of memorable remarks and reminiscences. 
During the years he has sent the School some very valu- 
able "Osleriana" which we treasure. 

On 28th February last in Montreal the Osier Society 
held its 35th annual banquet and Billy Francis was the 
Guest of Honour. The President of the Society presented 


Dr. Francis with a volume of tributes from a few of his 
many friends and admirers and Dr. Francis has given the 
School library a copy which he describes as follows: 

"The flabbergasting book of "Tributes" is now being 
distributed to subscribers and I am having a copy sent 
to you for the School library with my compliments. You 
might inscribe it "Sent with the compliments of Billy 
Francis '88-'95, and with advice to his successors to take 
it, if at all, with a huge grain of salt, and to accept his 
own claim that he has proved Abe Lincoln wrong by 
managing to fool all of his friends all of the time. You'll 
notice that many of them praise my letterwriting, as 
you do. Think how that complicates my task of thanking 
all these deluded devotees!" 

The School extends its warmest congratulations and 
best v/ishes to one of its illustrious sons. 

We reprint a very few of the tributes below: 

The memory of Sir William Osier spreads throughout all parts 
of the world where modern medicine is practised. The stories about 
him are legion and unnumbered thousands have read Cushing's extra- 
ordinary biography. To deepen so persuasive a memory, to lodge the 
enriched sense of a great personality in one spot that none can visit 
without a fuller realization of Osier's many-sided greatness, is a re- 
markable achievement. Nobody but Dr. Francis could have done it. 
His long years of close association with Osier enriched the Bibliotheca 
Osleriana to a level that scholarship alone could not have attained; 
and the marginal notes which have been added to the books of the 
Osier Library show anyone who is privileged to see them that the 
process of enrichment has not yet ended. 

F. Cyril James 

Principal, McGill University 

I send you most affectionate greetings on this happy occasion, 
with which I am so glad to be associated because of our old friendship 
and my love for Sir William and for Canada. 

Your devoted, 

Ruth Draper 

Through Dr. Francis the master words of Osier came to us, and 
as we stood and fingered the pages of Albertus, or lingered over the 
marginal notations in a copy of the "Religio", it seemed that Sir 
William was there too, smiling over our shoulders. 


There could never be a more charming introduction to Servetus, 
Linacre, or to the Great Physician's very own Religio than those ever- 
youthful sparkling blue eyes. For he is possessed, it is said, by the 
same genie, frolicsome and ageless, that haunted Osier throughout 
his life. 

The enchantment was never broken. He would often drop his pen 
to translate some Pliny for us, or to produce from nowhere, it would 
seem, a sketch by Richard Bright. Tirelessly he worked, did good by 
stealth, and blushed to find it fame. 

Dr. Francis will never know all the love and appreciation we 
have for him. Words are always poor expressions of personal worth, 
especially such a worth as Meredith extols: 
That man is good and he alone 

Who serves a greatness not his own 
For neither praise nor pelf: 

Content to know and be unknown, 
Whole in himself. 

Thomas J. Sullivan 

It is thanks in no small measure to William Francis that the 
heroic legend of William Osier has grown in strength and, as I 
believe, will never die. 

Through the years, many members of the McGill School of 
Medicine, graduate and undergraduate alike, have turned for guidance 
to the Osier Librarian, whenever they felt the urge to particularly 
thoughtful writing. 

Sometime his response is unexpected, puckish. When I turned 
to him for a quotation to place at the head of a menu for a formal 
dinner, he sent the following quotation from a letter written by 
Sir Thomas Browne to his son Edward in 1678: 

Remember mee to all friends which you shall see 

at the feast. Bee temperate at eat of feasts 
especially this hott wether if you haue any care of 
your health and a confortable life to yourself 
and others; and indeed there is no such pittifull 
thing as a Guttling. 
Many men are grateful to William Francis because he has helped 
them to keep alive, each in his own heart, the memory of greatness. 
Many are different because they carry with them the image of 
Osier, the good physician. The last words of Socrates were: "Critto, 
we ought to offer a cock to Asclepius. See to it and don't forget." 

Today the Greek temples of Aesculapius have been torn down. 
But on the fourth floor of the McGill Medical Building there is a 
shrine and, in it, the spirit of William Osier lives on. We who have 
found the path that leads to this shrine must surely offer a "cock 
to Asclepius", make some sacrifice of gratitude upon the altar served 
so faithfully, and so well, by William Francis.

There was a man ... I will tell it softly 

When Mamilius in Shakespeare's play began his tale with these 
words he was rudely interrupted. I am going to risk a similar fate — 
and so, with some slight change due to the tricks of memory, here 
it is: 

There was a man — 
Dwelt in a library. I will tell it softly; 
Yond bookworms shall not hear it. 

But — there you are — I am interrupted by a very audible 
chuckle from a very real man, a chuckle that seems to be echoed 
by another spirit that hovers about the man and the library in which 
he is sitting. And then the world comes in at the door and I am told 
that Dr. Francis will shortly be called upon to witness the agonies 
of books in process of transplantation. In the meantime, and on the 
occasion of the thirty-fifth anniversary of the Osier Society, it is de- 
sired that some of us join in a salute to him. An extra-mural affair 
of course — for it occurs to me that every book in its respective shelf 
will come to attention and salute, before marching off to the ground 
floor to a new, but unchanged Osier Library. 

I have known "Billy" Francis these many years. I have watched 
him trying to look serious during sessions of a medical convention. I 
have relished his bibliophilic hospitality. I always think of him affec- 
tionately. But chiefly I have come to know him through his letters, 
invariably short, cheery and witty. They have forged our friendship. 
And to those conventional souls who may murmur that such friend- 
ship has only paper bonds, I would say with G.B.S. (in the preface 
to the Shaw-Terry Letters) that only on paper has humanity yet 
achieved glory, beauty, truth, knowledge, virtue and abiding love. I 
wish I could lay my hands on those letters, for an anthology of them 
would make just about the best tribute I can think of. But alas! they 
are buried in the files of the poor wretch here speaking who has 
never mastered the art of filing treasures where they can be readily 
located. My only consolation is that on the day of judgment when 
the trumpets sound and the Book with seven seals is opened and all 
that was hidden is revealed, those letters will once more be within 
reach to rejoice me. 

Like Beatrice, W.W.F. seems to have been born under a dancing 
star. Personality has been his great achievement, happily down to 
the present. Here he is today, in the academic sense sixty-five years 
old for the past twelve years, and in another dimension eighteen 
years old for nearly an average lifespan. As the eternal schoolboy he 
is a Romantic. Humorous and penetrating, he has the gaiety and 
sanity of his illustrious uncle, W.O. Like Plato he obviously believes 
that an unmitigated serious attitude is out of place in human affairs, 
and his example has been a salutary reminder to all of us who in- 
cline to be solemn and heavy-handed. Those brittle attributes so 
much in evidence today — cynicism, sophistication and blindness of 
heart — are for him, in old "Anatomy" Burton's words "pestiferous 
perturbations". His mind has the sensitive antennae of a poet. And 
like all good poets he is very much the non-conformist, the eternal 
don in academic matters. 


To appreciate the real and essential Francis, he must be visited 
in the Osier Library, one of the shrines of Canada. Here he watches 
with a certain affectionate detachment the procession of life. One 
soon discovers that he is a maater of the folklore of librarianship, a 
great bookman and an intimate of the international fraternity of 
scholars, partcularly those in the medical world who busy themselves 
with history, that "velvet study" as Thomas Fuller called it. He has 
provided a rich leaven for Montreal medicine and Canadian medicine 
in general. 

But best of all he has been the worthy custodian and beneficiary 
of the Osier tradition, one of the moving forces in modern medicine, 
and he has continued to make it a living and human power. In a 
real sense he is the extension in time of William Osier — the post- 
cards and notes and letters which were so characteristic of Osier 
have continued to go forward, carrying the spirit and blessing of 
W.O. to the far corners of the earth. It is a noble achievement. Per- 
sonally I know nothing quite like it. With such a perfect demeanour 
to life, Francis in our time has been one of the great exemplars of 
the Roman virtue of "pietas", that quality of mind which respects 
the past, celebrates the past, and in so doing creates a centre about 
which the aspirations and ideals of man can rally and stand fast. 

His spiritual home is surely not so much McGill as that place 
mentioned in Pilgrim's Progress — the Interpreter's House, where 
travellers come and go continually and get good counsel and cheer 
and knowledge of the journey ahead. Bunyan does not inention that 
the Interpreter's House had a library, but I am quite sure that there 
is a spacious one. Here W.W.F. will be in his element, one of a noble 
company with endless tea and talk and tobacco, a deep fireplace, the 
good smell of leather volumes and endless speculation about a multi- 
tude of things — what songs the sirens sang, what medicines "winne 
women", the actual symmetry of Cleopatra's nose, what Galen said 
of Aristotle, and so on infinitely. 

W.W.F.'s friends — and they are legion — are the better for hav- 
ing known him down through the years. From him they have acquired 
some tincture of his philosophy of life, his mirthful creed, his delight 
in a world of fidelities and self-respect, his fund of antibodies to the 
various strains of bacterium bibliophilum. All his life he has happily 
provided lenitives to those of us who grumble under the common 
miseries of this life. We rejoice that he will still be with us — a con- 
stant reminder that decent, spiritual, intellectual and civilized things 
still exist in the world. 

So a salute to W.W.F. — multum amans, multum amatus.

Prince, you are made of immortal stuff, 
Tarry a little and quaff a glass — 
And tell us again, in smooth and rough 
How does one practise aequanimitas ?

The five years that Dr. Cushing spent in preparing the Osier 
Biography are rich in association with you — far more than the 
thirty-one references in the index would indicate. From that note in 
March 1920 announcing that Lady Osier had asked him to undertake 
the biography and adjuring you "to think about this as though you 
were going to do the story yourself", and late, "to get a notebook 
to carry around in your pocket and jot down any reminiscences that 
you think will be helpful to me" which culminated in that touching 
account of the last evening in December 1919, H.C.'s debt to you 
was an ever-increasing one. 

Madeline Stanton 

Since the dedication of the Osier Library in 1929 I have not had 
the happiness of seeing you, but messages have often reached me 
from across the Atlantic — jocular, humane, bibliographical — and I 
think of you now with affection and admiration on the 35th annivers- 
ary of the Osier Society of McGill University, you, the presiding 
genius in the safeguarding of a great tradition. 

Your old friend, 

Geoffrey Keynes 

How many librarians tell us about their books with such wealth 
of allusion; how many can? Who other than Bill Francis would, for 
example, speak of a frontispiece (to a book on incantations) as 
"showing a perfect Blitz of witches riding the skies on devils, goats 
and broomsticks", or would deal so gently as he with names of men 
whom even his kindliness cannot disguise as other than unpleasant 
characters; or would pick out this note by Sir Thomas Browne on 
the pericardium? 

Few uses it surely hath out of the body. Only it 
may be observed that as men's hearts are commonly 
in their purses, so many of the country people, 
taking advantage of the figure and toughness of 
this part make little purses thereof and carry their 
money in them.

ON SUNDAY, MAY 13, 1956 

The Annual General Meeting of the Association was 
held in the Library of the School at 11.30 a.m. Sunday, 
May 13, 1956, during the Reunion weekend. The President, 
Brigadier I. H. Cumberland, was in the Chair. 

On motion of C. F, W. Burns, seconded by A. S. Gray- 
don, the Mjnutes of the last meeting were taken as read. 

The Secretary-Treasurer reported on the financial status 
of the Association and gave a brief outline of activity in 
the office during the year. Specifically mentioned was the 
much improved list of Old Boys with up-to-date addresses 
and the ease with which large mailings could now be made 
using the Addressograph machine donated by the President. 

The President presented his report, first proposing a 
vote of thanks to the Promotion Committee under Syd Lam- 
bert and Hubie Sinclair, which had done so much to make 
the weekend such a success. He spoke of the continued 
activity of the Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver Branches 
and the establishment of a Branch in Calgary. Paid mem- 
bership in the Association had reached an all-time high of 
949 and more were still being received. The proposed new 
Directory might be published in the autumn as we had 
achieved our minimum objective of at least 2.000 names 
with up-to-date addresses. It was proposed to list the names 
in the Directory by districts, giving an alphabetical listing 
and reference to the district pages. The President thanked 
all those who had been so helpful during the year. 

C. F. W. Burns spoke with enthusiasm of the splendid 
start made in the T.C.S. Fund Campaign. Initial contribu- 


tions had been so gratifying that the Committee had decided 
to increase the objective. 

The President mentioned the basic thinking behind the 
campaign for funds and the desirability of incorporating 
other Funds and Accounts into the main T.C.S. Fund. After 
discussion the following resolutions were approved: — 

Fees: On motion of S. B. Saunders, seconded by J. W. 
Seagram, it was resolved that all Fees payable to the Asso- 
ciation would be abohshed and that all Old Boys would auto- 
matically be members of the Association, receiving all 
literature such as the "Record", Bulletins, Fixture Cards, 
etc., without further payment. 

Branches: It was suggested that the various Branches 
could look after themselves financially and that the Central 
Office would give assistance in the mailing of notices, ad- 
dresses, etc. S. B. Saunders suggested that any Branch 
could request funds and it was recommended to the Fund 
Committee that any requests for allocation of funds be 

Bursary Fund: On motion of A. R. Winnett, seconded 
by A. S. Ince, it was resolved that the Bursary Fund would 
be incorporated into the T.C.S. Fund, the monies still to be 
used for Bursaries. 

Life Members: On motion by S. B. Saunders, seconded 
by B. M. Osier, it was resolved that the Capital Funds made 
up of Life Membership Fees would be turned over to the 
T.C.S. Fund and that the exact wording of the resolution 
to cover disposition of the funds would be left to the in- 
coming Executive. 

Constitution: In view of the major constitutional 
changes involving the finances of the Association it was felt 
that a revised Constitution should be prepared and all Old 
Boys informed. It was resolved that the incoming Execu- 
tive should take the necessary steps in accordance with 
the Constitution. 

On motions of A. S. Ince, H. E. C. Price, S. B. Saunders 
and S. F. M. Wotherspoon, seconded by J. W. Seagram, C. 


F. W. Burns, A. S. Graydon and J. W. Kerr, the following 
were elected officers of the Association for the ensuing year : 

Honorary President — P. A. C. Ketchum. 

President — A. R. Winnett. 

Vice-Presidents — J. M. Cape, T. L. Taylor. 

Secretary-Treasurer: — P. A. McFarlane. 

On motion by G. D. Wotherspoon, seconded by J. M. 
Cape, the following were elected as representaives of the 
Association on the Governing Body: P, C. Osier for three 
years; A. A. Duncanson for two years. The other represen- 
tative, previously elected and with one year of his term 
remaining, is J. M. Cape. 

The new Executive took over the meeting and the 
President thanked the outgoing officers. 

The Headmaster spoke briefly, making reference to the 
great success of the weekend which was due to the efforts 
of many loyal Old Boys, and he paid tribute to the en- 
thusiasm and energy of Ian Cumberland duing the past two 
years as President, to the work of the various committees, 
and to the excellent work in the office of W. K. "Chip" 
Molson, Mrs. Spencer and Mrs. Johnson. 

The meeting adjourned at 12.35 p.m. 

C. F. READ C14-'15) 

(The following note was written by an Old Boy who 
knew "Buck" Read well in recent years. The Headmaster 
called in to see Buck late in April and they talked about 
Old Days at the School, some of the hockey battles, and 
many of the former boys. He seemed in good health but 
spoke of a serious motor accident he had been in last 
autumn. ) 

Clarence "Buck" Read died suddenly in Bobcaygeon 
on May 30th. He played on the first football team, and is 
remembered as a really outstanding hockey player. 

Mr. Read was a very strong pillar of his village, and 
was unostentatiously deeply religious. For some years he 


operated a large general store, and later conducted a big 
lumber business with his surviving brother. He was Reeve 
of Bobcaygeon for some years. Many a family was quietly 
carried through a winter when "Buck" Read ran his store, 
and there was always room for one more worthy unemployed 
man on the pay-roll of his lumber business. 

He was Rector's Warden at Christ Church, Bobcaygeon, 
when he died. Although he seldom visited the School, he 
always spoke much about it to other Old Boys, referring 
constantly to the Chapel and the Services, the memory of 
which he cherished deeply. 

Buck Read was a staunch friend to everyone in his 
community. His humour and cheerfulness concealed from 
most people his gentle Christian stand. He was proud of 

K.B.E., C.B., C.M-G. ('78-'83) 

Sir Casimir van Straubenzee died in England on the 
28th of March in his eighty-ninth year. Until a few days 
before his death he was in excellent health and spirits and 
full of vigour: he often spoke of his early days in Canada. 

Sir Casimir went to R.M.C. and entered the Royal 
Artillery as a Lieutenant in 1886. He was promoted rapidly 
and was a Lieut.-Colonel on the outbreak of war in 1914. 
Appointed Chief Instructor R.F.A., he then became In- 
spector General of the R.A. and later Major General of 
the R.A. Fifth Army in France. He was mentioned in des- 
patches four times. 

From 1898 until 1903 he was a Professor at R.M.C. 

Between the wars he held important Army commands 
until his retirement in 1929.
